- 625 generous donors from all walks of life made charitable gifts to make life better in Hampton Roads.
- $17.5 million in grants and scholarships was distributed -- $2 million more than in 2017.
- 150+ nonprofits put our grants into action to help create a thriving community with opportunity for all.
- 413 students enrolled in college for 2018-19 with help from $1.4 million in scholarships -- the largest number of students and highest scholarship amount awarded in our 69-year history.
