The Great Falls Friends & Neighbors Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization providing scholarships to women in Northern Virginia who are pursuing degrees in higher education. The GFFNSF is proud to provide academic scholarships to deserving women over the age of 25 who are attending George Mason University or Northern Virginia Community College.
In 2016, the GFFN Scholarship Fund established two $25,000 endowments -- one at George Mason University and one at Northern Virginia Community College. The endowments ensure perpetuity of monies previously donated and reflect a strong desire to invest in women, children, and the community at harge though higher education.
To further supplement the typical 4% yield paid by the endowments each year, the GFFN Scholarship Fund sponsors fundraising activities. These activities are determined by the scholarship needs and by Board recommendations.
We are proud to give back to our community by making a difference to other women and take pride in the testimonials that we receive from our extraordinary scholarship recipients.
