The Loudoun Chamber of Commerce recently announced that its Loudoun Chamber Foundation has selected six local nonprofit organizations that will each receive a $4,000 grant to support their work in the community.
Founded in 2014, the Loudoun Chamber Foundation invests in local nonprofits that are focused on the economy, workforce development, public safety and wellness in Loudoun. Since then, the foundation has invested $82,000 into the Loudoun community.
“As the 2018 chair of the Loudoun Chamber’s board of directors, I am proud to see our business community stepping up to support the needs of Loudoun’s citizens,” Mitch Sproul of Toth Financial Advisory Corp said in a prepared statement. “As business leaders, we recognize that quality of life issues are business issues, and that by supporting Loudoun’s outstanding nonprofits we are serving the economic interests of our entire community.”

-The Good Shepherd Alliance, a Christian nonprofit that provides help for the homeless and others in need through emergency and transitional housing and outreach services.
-Loudoun Free Clinic, an organization dedicated to providing quality medical care for adult in Loudoun County who, because of economic barriers, would otherwise do without.
