ACT for Alexandria

Give and Make Alexandria Stronger

Chances are, you have a tremendous amount of pride being an Alexandrian!  It’s no surprise that companies like Amazon and others are choosing to make a home in our community.  Our community is a beautiful city with a rich, complex history and an extraordinary legacy from our forebears.  We appreciate our neighbors – new comers and long-term residents alike – and view our diversity as a strength. We have amazing nonprofits that work hard every day to improve the lives of Alexandrians.

As you and your family think about your year-end charitable giving, I invite you to give to ACT for Alexandria.  As a community foundation, our strength and success come from you, our donors! 

Donations to ACT enable us to partner with the City of Alexandria, the school system, community organizations and others to

A few our accomplishments include:

  • ACT Is a Resource Builder: $2.4 million in donations to Alexandria nonprofits in 2017. In 2018, with your support, we are on track to do more!
  • ACT Is a Community Leader: Through Spring2ACTion more than 9,000 people gave $1.8 million dollars to 156 local nonprofits, making it one of the most successful giving days in the country!
  • ACT Is a Resource Multiplier: Every dollar you donate to ACT returns $3.74 to the community. That means more investment in local nonprofits so they can innovate, grow, and address the critical needs of our community.

It’s amazing what we can do together.  Join us in making Alexandria stronger.  Donate to ACT.
