Over the last two years, gifts made through the CVC have proven critical for area nonprofits, many of which have struggled due to the pandemic. Nonprofits in Charlottesville, as well as across the country, have seen a substantial increase in demand for their services, at the same time that funding has declined due to changing economic conditions.
G. Kelly Eplee, director of donor relations for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville, said the CVC has made a difference for his organization.
“The longstanding impact of the CVC on Habitat should be described as a relationship, financial and personal,” he said. “We are thankful that donor generosity has steadily increased as a dependable funding source, undergirding the success of our affordable housing/homeownership program building 270-plus homes in our area. Thanks to the CVC and others, hard-working families can move out of substandard conditions to build and own their own homes.”
