More than $600,000 awarded to help build and renovate nonprofit facilities

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation recently awarded grants to six local nonprofit organizations to support major capital projects and campaigns that are transformative for the organization and the communities it serves.

Why this matters: We believe suitable nonprofit facilities are critical to successful programs and services. We also believe vibrant facilities that provide appropriate space and are efficiently and attractively designed bring important benefits to clients, staff and the community.

The organizations are:

Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, $50,000 as a challenge grant to support major improvements to their building in Virginia Beach.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia, $100,000 to support their capital campaign for the newly purchased Portsmouth Club site. Funds will be used for the pool area.

Chesapeake Bay Academy (CBA), $40,000 to support their capital campaign. Funds will be used for building renovations required to house the Center for Educational Research and Technological Innovation (CERTI).

Dockside Art Review of Tidewater (d’Art Center), $50,000 to fund the technology and equipment necessary for the major renovations of their new space in Norfolk’s NEON district.

Louise W. Eggleston Center, Inc., $125,760 to renovate a newly purchased building that will house the Beacon House brain injury and Warrior Bridge programs and headquarters’ offices.

Seton Youth Shelters, $255,000 over two years to support the Building Promise Capital Campaign to combine Seton’s programs and services on one campus, including a boys’ shelter, girls’ shelter, and an administrative and community education center.
