2017 Collective Grants

Voting by the membership on the nonprofit organizations to receive grant funding has concluded. They will be notified the week of November 13. Call 703-665-9334 or email grants@givingcircleofHOPE.org, if you have questions.

Read about our collective grant process.


Though 2017 membership is over, it’s not too early to prepare for next year.

If a one-time $415 voting membership payment is daunting, we also offer monthly contributions via the Giving Circle of HOPE option on the Community Foundation of Northern Virginia website. The amount you specify will be charged automatically to the credit card you provide. This allows you to contribute throughout the year. It also gives us a better sense of the number of grants we will be able to support earlier in the grant review process. Before you know it, you’ll be a full voting member!
