CFDRR Celebrates its Donors on November 10

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!

25th Anniversary Open House Celebration!

CFDRR would like to thank the 58 guests who celebrated with us at our 25th Anniversary Open House on Sept. 10! The celebration included speakers and spontaneous sharing of stories highlighting CFDRR’s history of impact. CFDRR held a surprise $2,500 grant drawing in recognition of nonprofit organizations that are so vital in helping CFDRR connect donors to the resources and causes important to them and our community. Congratulations to the Virginia Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, serving Danville-Pittsylvania County, winner of the drawing! CFDRR’s 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign will run until Dec. 31, with the goal of raising $25,000.
