Grants of between $10,000 and $100,000 are being awarded to improve the quality of life for residents of Virginia. Qualified organizations which work towards better healthcare, human services, community enrichment, education, arts and culture, the environment, or other critical needs are particularly encouraged. The Foundation gives careful consideration to the potential impact of the project and to especially imaginative and collaborative approaches to solving community needs. The Foundation will consider both seed money grants for innovative new programs and operating support to organizations performing services vital to the community. Projects of interest include those that encourage matching gifts from other sources, those that assist citizens whose needs are not met by existing services, and those that benefit a significant number of citizens of the community.

The Community Endowment does not provide support for:
* Endowments
* Deficit reduction
* Fund-raising events or annual appeals of well-established organizations
* Political or religious advocacy projects
