Who We Are
The Arlington Community Foundation is the local home for individuals, foundations, businesses and organizations in Arlington to carry out their charitable giving. The Foundation's general funds - supported by contributions from community members - improve and strengthen the community in and around Arlington through grants made to local nonprofit organizations. The Foundation has several competitive grant cycles throughout the year. Grants to local, national and international nonprofit organizations are also recommended by advisors to Donor Advised Funds created to direct the charitable priorities of individuals, families, foundations, businesses or organizations. If desired, the Community Foundation can provide information to fund advisors about local needs and issues. The Community Foundation also acts as a catalyst and convener on important issues affecting the Arlington community. The Arlington Community Foundation has a well-established Annual Scholarship Program that most recently awarded over $300,000 in college scholarships to 140 students. The scholarships, each with its own unique eligibility criteria, are funded by generous individuals, families, companies and organizations.
