THEARC Honored During Bank of America Neighborhood Builders Award Ceremony

On March 12, 2015 The Bank of America Charitable Foundation welcomed staff and supporters of Building Bridges Across the River, the nine nonprofits residing at THEARC and the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia (LCNV) for a special ceremony and reception honoring both nonprofits as 2014 Neighborhood Builders. The nonprofits were recognized for their work helping low and moderate income individuals gain access to education, healthcare, and other basic human services. Currently marking its tenth anniversary, Neighborhood Builders is a strategic investment in communities that combines $200,000 in flexible funding with leadership training for high-performing nonprofits and their executives.

Organizations selected as Neighborhood Builders are recognized for their significant impact in addressing needs related to community development, basic human services or workforce development and education. The flexible funding allows nonprofits to build capacity. At the same time, leaders of the organizations learn about issues core to nonprofit sustainability through the Neighborhood Builders leadership training.
