The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia on Sept. 19 will honor the winners of the Loudoun Impact Fund grants with a ceremony.
The event, to be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Stone Tower Winery, 19925 Hogback Mountain Road, Leesburg, will celebrate five Loudoun nonprofit groups that recently were awarded $50,000. The funds will go to support capacity building as well as programs that address the well-being of children and youth, specifically in the areas of mental health and substance abuse. Winners included Loudoun Cares, HealthWorks for Northern Virginia, Loudoun Citizens for Social Justice/LAWS, Loudoun Youth and NAMI Northern Virginia.
The event will also help introduce the Loudoun Impact Fund to other Loudoun based donors and community leaders.
“As a member of the Loudoun Impact Fund and the owner of Stone Tower Vineyards, I am delighted to be hosting this event to help celebrate community based philanthropy in Loudoun County,” Mike Huber, proprietor of Stone Tower Vineyards and CEO of Belfort Furniture in Sterling said in a prepared statement. “The Loudoun Impact Fund has the potential to have a large impact on local nonprofits by engaging many more Loudoun based individual and corporate donors in local philanthropy.”
The Loudoun Impact Fund is a new giving circle run by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia, exclusive to Loudoun County citizens, corporations and service organizations. It was established to invest strategically in Loudoun County to promote education, the arts and the environment and to support the needs of Loudoun families, children and youth. Members of the Loudoun Impact Fund pool their membership fees and together determine which causes to support. Members then review grant applications and make grant recommendations from the Loudoun Impact Fund. To learn more or to become a member, visit http://www.cfnova.org/loudoun
