2022 Annual Report
A YEAR IN REVIEW
Volunteers gather for the Calfee Community and Cultural Center clean up day.
Each day, the Community Foundation team interacts with the nonprofits and donors who dedicate their time, energy, and resources to helping the New River Valley thrive. Learning about the challenges facing nonprofits serving our region helps our team understand what our role should be in supporting these vital organizations. As people around the world work to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, our region’s nonprofits continue to innovate in the ways they carry out their missions, but many are also still addressing significant challenges brought on by the pandemic. Supporting One Another Through the Pandemic
These challenges include budget shortfalls because of increasing supply costs as well as a decrease in monetary donations. Others report struggling with staffing both employees and volunteers. Our Responsive Grants program is designed to help address some of these issues by offering up to $4,000 in operating support, which gives organizations the power to put grant dollars where they are most needed. Annually, this program receives around 100 applications, and approximately 50% are funded.
