History

The Community Foundation was formally incorporated in March of 1997 by a small group of philanthropic individuals. The following year was spent soliciting additional board members and securing sufficient funding commitments to pursue the search for an executive director. In October of 1998, The Community Foundation began formal operations. Currently, we manage over 170 funds and have over $25 million in assets.

The Community Foundation is one of more than 750 independent community foundations in the United States and one of 28 Virginia community foundations.  We are one of approximately 500 community foundations that have earned the National Standards Seal from the Council on Foundations for attaining the highest standards for grantmaking integrity and accountability.
