The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation has received a $50,000 grant from Northrop Grumman Corporation, a global security company with offices in Charlottesville. The company made the gift in recognition of the Foundation’s leadership after the violence of August 2017, and the funds will support racial equity work at the Foundation.
“We’re so grateful to have Northrop Grumman as a partner in this important work,” Brennan Gould, the Foundation’s president and CEO, said.
Established in 1967, the Community Foundation serves Charlottesville and the surrounding counties of Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, Orange, Fluvanna, Nelson, and Buckingham. The Foundation supports nonprofit organizations in fostering a vibrant and thriving region.
“The people who established the Community Foundation had a vision of a lasting resource dedicated to the region and rooted in the belief that we are all interconnected,” Gould said. “In order to thrive together, we have to value and invest in one another. We’re grateful to Northrop Grumman for their crucial support. It’s a gift not just to our organization but to the whole community.”
