McLean Citizens Association Conducting Residents Survey

It's not too late to participate in the McLean Citizens Association's (MCA) survey on community perspectives and desires at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/McLeanAreaSurvey.

Your responses on what you like about McLean, what you would like to see preserved, and what changes you would like to see will help MCA focus on what matters to McLean residents in 2014 and beyond. The survey is short -- only 10 questions -- and should take only a few minutes to complete.

McLean Community Foundation Grant Request Deadline Approaching

The McLean Community Foundation is accepting proposals for its current grants cycle until Feb. 1, 2014. Applications can be found on the MCF’s website at mcleancommunityfoundation.org.

In 2013 the foundation funded projects as diverse as Share, Inc, a monument to honor victims of the Global War on Terrorism for American Legion Post 270 to medical care for the Children Partnership Foundation. Total grants in 2013 totaled $54,954.

The McLean Community Foundation (MCF) is a non-profit formed in 1980 by the McLean Citizen’s Association to meet the philanthropic needs of a growing McLean community. Our focus is entirely and specifically on our McLean community and was established solely as a charitable foundation to benefit the residents of the McLean Planning District of Fairfax County.
