The McLean Community Foundation, a charitable foundation designed to benefit residents of the McLean Planning District of Fairfax County, will accept grant requests through Feb. 1.

Applications and information are available on the foundation’s website.

Last year, the group gave out nearly $55,000 to a variety of projects — from American Legion Post 270 for a monument to honor victims of the War on Terror to the Children Partnership Foundation for medical care.

One past $15,000 grant to Capital Hospice was used to help buy laptop computers for nurses who provide end-of-life care to more than 100 McLean-area patients, according to the foundation’s website.

The foundation was formed in 1980 by the McLean Citizens Association to meet the philanthropic needs of the growing McLean community, according to a news release.
