Please Support our Community Crisis Fund & Help Us Help Our Food Pantries
Rising prices are putting a strain on our local food pantries. Please help us help them. Through its Community Crisis Fund, the Foundation provides gift cards that the pantries can distribute as needed. These cards enable clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have, such as fresh foods, baby products, and toiletries.
To donate, use the button below to open our PayPal donation page and select Community Crisis Fund on the drop-down menu.

The Foundation is once again sponsoring a raffle to help fulfill grant requests and other financial obligations. The winner will receive $5,000; 350 tickets will be sold at $50 each. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Northern Neck Beach Music Festival on Saturday, September 10th; but, you need not be present to win. Email us to purchase tickets or look for our tent at events throughout the Spring and Summer.
LOVE Golf Cart Ornaments
We have LOVE Golf Cart ornaments. Email us or visit our tent at various events this season. Ornaments also are available at Colonial Buzz on Colonial Ave. First come, first served until they are gone.
Ornaments are $20 each, cash or check, and make great gifts for your CBVA-loving friends and family. Net proceeds from the LOVE ornament sales go into the Foundation's Community Crisis Fund to assist our local food pantries.

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...
Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
