The Community Foundation celebrated many of its donors on November 10, 2022, during its annual Donor Appreciation Luncheon. During the luncheon, the donors awarded Smokestack Theatre Company a $3,000 grant and Pittsylvania Historical Society a $2,000 grant as part of a pop-up giving circle demonstration. A pop-up giving circle is a short, interactive experience that enables a reflective and intentional group to discuss and make a collective gift in a brief period of time. Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating last Thursday!
