We select local nonprofits or national nonprofits with a presence in Northern Virginia, provided that our grant will serve residents in our Northern Virginia-D.C. region. Since our donations are modest, usually in the $3,000 to $5,000 range, we choose nonprofits that can use our gift to make a significant difference to those it serves. Nonprofits must be registered as a public charity.
Our final selection for 2022 was 2Unstoppable, the organization dedicated to helping women diagnosed with cancer to attain their best outcome through exercise with a partner. The program was established in 2018 by two breast cancer survivors who credit exercise for their recovery. 2Unstoppable offers women the means to connect with an exercise buddy for support and encouragement and a variety of programs to launch and continue each woman’s exercise regime toward recovery and vitality.
The nonprofit we selected to support for the third quarter of 2022 was The Spitfire Club, a literacy and social-emotional skills building, after-school program for elementary school girls that nurtures their love of reading and of self in a diverse, inclusive community. This nonprofit organization will use our donation to fund books, materials and staff time for 75 girls to build leadership and personal skills this fall.

The charities we supported in 2022 included: The Women’s Home, and Falls Church Public Schools Choral Boosters Association. For more information about them and our other past recipients, please visit Our Impact.
