Northern Virginia Connect

We welcome you to Connect Northern Virginia. This site is dedicated to defining and addressing issues facing the Northern Virginia communities.

We launched Connect Northern Virginia in the Fall of 2013. We've had thousands of visitors. We're happy to become a resource for so many in so many ways.

We do ask that if you find something that's not working 100%, please use the feedback button found in the upper right hand corner of the site. This will alert us to a problem that needs attention. Sharing success stories is also welcomed!

Point Of View

Nonprofits:  Are You Ready for "Do More 24" Set for June 2, 2016?

On June 2, thousands of people throughout the national capital area will create positive change by participating in the fourth annual Do More 24 campaign. They will log on to, choose their favorite nonprofits and give them money to help them fill gaps, provide new programs and enhance their services.

We know you do great work in Northern Virginia. Do More 24 is an opportunity to reach your donors and engage new donors as well.

Last year, Do More 24 donors contributed more than $1.4 million to nonprofits serving in the national capital area. This year we hope to raise even more for nonprofits such as yours. Also, United Way NCA will provide cash awards to those nonprofits that raise the most donations. Sign up!
