On November 18, 2021, the Arlington community came together to celebrate individuals, groups, and businesses who make Arlington truly extraordinary.

The year 2021 marks three decades of service for Arlington Community Foundation. To celebrate this milestone, the annual Spirit of Community Awards recognized three individuals for their selfless commitment to our community over those past three decades… and then some.

In addition to recognizing these individuals, this year’s Spirit of Community highlighted the inspiring and innovative work of young people and business leaders in our community. You can find the award honoree features, as well as these community highlights, below.

If you are moved by the work of Arlington Community Foundation and would like to support our efforts in the community, we welcome you to make a contribution to our Community Fund. Thank you so much for your continued love and support.
