The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County is a nonprofit organization established for the purpose of developing philanthropic funds for our community’s benefit. Distributions from these funds will be used to address issues of concern that affect our quality of life…today and for years to come.


Funds are established or bequeathed by individuals and families similar to yours. Funds can also come from other Foundations, nonprofit organizations and corporations. All funds are component funds of the Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3), and thus provide maximum public charity advantages for donors. Funds are pooled and managed by a team of investment professionals.


Your gift, regardless of the amount, will have a positive impact on our community. The Community Foundation offers a variety of simple, flexible, and effective options for those who wish to provide financial support to our community through philanthropy.


Dream. Share. Build. OUR COMMUNITY.
