GCOH Members.

Are you interested in MAKING A DIFFERENCE in Northern Virginia by strategically investing your philanthropic dollars, learning about important issues, helping others, and having fun with a purpose?

SO ARE WE! We would love to have you join our dynamic group!

Like all giving circles, our members contribute time, talents, and money and collectively decide how to use them to create positive change. We make it easy to be engaged in the community. Each member is valued, welcomed, nurtured, and given opportunities to GIVE, SERVE, LEARN, and LEAD.

Learn more About Us, Our Impact, and how to Get Involved.

If you are an exceptional nonprofit organization serving Northern Virginians and seeking funding for programs or capacity building, please visit our Grants section.

Members and nonprofit organizations alike can benefit from our experience as long-time supporters and partners of local nonprofits and our involvement and leadership in national collective giving organizations.
