The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia recently awarded $613,735 in grants to 50 local organizations through its 2022 Community Investment Funds, Environment Fund and Ross-Roberts Fund for the Arts programs, marking the largest ever discretionary-grants cycle in the Community Foundation’s history.
Selections were made via a number of volunteer committees totaling 78 members reviewing applications.
The growth of this discretionary-grants program is possible due to the Permanent Fund for Northern Virginia, an endowment that the Community Foundation is developing. Currently, the Permanent Fund is valued at more than $27 million in existing and planned gifts.
