UpCycle Site Visit

On September 19, ACT for Alexandria invited our supporters on a site visit to UpCycle Creative Reuse Center at the Durant Center. We were graciously hosted by new Executive Director Lexi Keogh and UpCycle board chair Lesley Harris. In 2017, ACT for Alexandria awarded UpCycle Creative Reuse Center a $10,000 grant. UpCycle’s mission is to inspire all people to explore and create by engaging the community in art-making experiences with reused materials.

Understanding the Space Around Us

We have made it to the halfway point of our strategic planning process! Since our June 16 community workshop, we have forged forward, continuing to learn from Alexandria by listening to Alexandrians. Our workshop results highlighted common concerns such as affordable housing, collaboration, and inclusion. We have continued to analyze Alexandria from both a broad and a narrow perspective. We have looked nationally to comparable-sized foundations and spoken to their leaders while also honing in on Alexandria’s changing demographics and existing nonprofit environment.
