The Community Fund
As proud citizens of the Rappahannock River region, we share a common vision: We love our community. We want Caroline, King George, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford to come together, grow and thrive.
Our local communities face real challenges, and the solutions are not simple, yet we believe strongly in the value and the potential of our area.
What is the best way to protect our region and ensure that it thrives? Many excellent ideas exist. Local nonprofits and community leaders are hard at work creating significant impact. They need and deserve our help.
The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region offers a powerful way to offer this help through The Community Fund. This fund was established in 2003. Directed by the foundation’s Board of Governors, it was designed such that it can be re-targeted each year in response to the most promising opportunities for impact. The fund’s founders intended to prepare The Community Foundation to respond quickly and strategically to address critical needs in our region.
When generous people think broadly, when we think long-term, when we invest in our region now and for generations to come, we can create positive results and build upon our successes.
Through The Community Fund, The Community Foundation Board of Governors provides coordination, collaboration and sustained investment. When donors choose to give to this unrestricted fund, the foundation can connect financial resources and human capital to effective nonprofits and community groups already at work. Imagine the impact if these organizations and their unsung leaders could count on sufficient support and coordinated funding!
Join us and invest in our beloved region through The Community Fund.
