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.
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.
