Nonprofits

The Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley supports our area nonprofits in several ways:

We manage endowments for many area nonprofits, alleviating the responsibility and liability for administration and investment decisions for their volunteer board members. Some were established by the nonprofits themselves, while others were established by donors wishing to support their favorite charity.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer grants to selected area nonprofits. We welcome grant applications from qualified nonprofit organizations whose missions are to meet the needs in the communities we cover.

As the Foundation grows, our plans include increasing our support and services to area nonprofits to help them increase their capacity to fulfill their own missions.

In short, your affiliation with the Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley is a win-win: It will lend permanence and prestige to your organization that will grow as we increase our own publicity, marketing and educational efforts in the community. And it will increase our stature and credibility in the community and improve our ongoing mission of providing endowment funding for local needs.
