LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) - The Community Foundation of Rockbridge, Bath and Alleghany counties doubled its efforts this year.

The foundation had planned to hand out $220,000 in grants to non-profits as part of its regular distribution. But this year, they were also asked to help in the distribution of CARES Act funds to assist during the pandemic, adding another $260,000 in gifts.

“We’re very fortunate that we’re in a position to fill a role in the community to help out in these extraordinary times," said Buddy Bryan, CFRBA chairman of the board. "And we hope going forward in the future, we’ll be able to do more to help the non-profits in the areas that we serve.”

The Community Foundation maintains a range of accounts and annuities to help non-profits in the Rockbridge, Bath and Alleghany areas.
