Local Farmer Directs Donation to the Foundation

Local Farmer Cathy Cavender of Monrovia Farm recently directed a $2,500 Bayer's Fund America's Farmers Grow Communities donation to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation. The Grow Communities program ask farmers around the country to participate by nominating nonprofits with resources to strengthen their local communities. Ms. Cavender stated: "At Monrovia Farm, we value our local, volunteer community and we always strive to be a part of this small, yet mighty network. As farmers, food insecurity is an important issue to our family, and we are impressed with how Colonial Beach Community Foundation has stepped up to the plate by increasing their efforts to assist some of the most vulnerable in our area."

Foundation Newsletter

Our Newsletter & Occasional Email

We distribute a newsletter via email, typically within the first week of the month. We also post it on our Facebook page and include a link to it on this page. In the newsletter, we will catch you up on what we have been doing and provide information on our upcoming activities and events. We also often take the opportunity to tell you a little bit about the Foundation itself, or one of our community partners or volunteers. We occasionally send out an email if we have something to tell you that is time sensitive, or special enough to standout by itself, or to correct an error, etc. We encourage you to sign up for our emails and promise not inundate your inbox.

Like other organizations, we are experiencing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because many of our activities and events have been cancelled or postponed, and we often have to be creative in how our Board of Directors and committees meet. Our newsletters might not run on a perfect monthly schedule for a while. As an alternative to a newsletter, we might simply send an email.
