The property was donated to The Community Foundation by Mary Jane O’Neill, a board member and long-time friend of the organization.
“We can accept gifts of all kinds,” said Lisa Biever, director of Donor Services. “Ms. O’Neill’s gift is a great fit; she is tremendously generous.”
Proceeds from the sale will go to two funds. One is the Community Enrichment Fund.
“The Community Enrichment Fund is one fund where our board gets a real say,” Biever said. “The board members listen and learn from area nonprofits and donors, and they have the power to use the funds where they believe they’re needed most in the community. We are excited for the opportunities the board has to be responsive.”
The second is the Organization Endowment Fund. “Over time, we hope to have more than $1 million in our Organization Endowment Fund,” Biever said. “It will help us make an even deeper impact.”
The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region manages more than 125 funds and more than $16 million in assets, and distributes monies in grants to a variety of non-profit programs, organizations, and other community-oriented charitable efforts in the region.
