Loudoun Community Cabinet

Grant Recipient 2020

Sharon and Scott are founding members of the Loudoun Community Cabinet, a giving circle that seeks to bring innovation, leverage, and resources to systemic human services gaps in Loudoun County. Initial goals include:

  • Strategically map identified needs and gaps working with existing organizations, both public and private, to better address those needs;
  • Strengthen the philanthropic voice in Loudoun County;
  • Strategically support efforts to fully fund human service nonprofits in Loudoun County;
  • Develop top talent in the nonprofit sector; and,
  • Work toward high-impact and coordinated delivery of human services in Loudoun County.


As Loudoun County has experienced rapid growth, the local government has also experienced the consequences of a larger population, requiring additional resources and services. County budgets are unable to provide all that is needed. Additionally, as the community has identified needs, more nonprofit organizations have been established with good intentions to address those needs, but often with minimal executive experience to guide their success. As a result, critical gaps in human services have emerged that allow members of our community to fall between the cracks.


The Loudoun Community Cabinet is a small group of philanthropists who recognize the value of pooling their resources to effect positive change in their community. Together, they are building a pool of grantmaking resources to:

  • recommend where these resources will offer the greatest impact,
  • leverage additional funding, and,
  • forge new collaborations.


Loudoun Community Cabinet members serve as ambassadors and successful community influencers to invite outcome-based alliances with nonprofit agencies, Loudoun County government, businesses, and other philanthropies.
