The GRTC does not solicit donations. But we do practice what we preach about partnership and pro-bono giving.
We have collaborated with Good360, Volunteer Fairfax, TapRoot, A Billion + Change, the Community Foundation of Northern Virginia, the Center for Nonprofit Advancement, George Mason University (GMU), Congressman Jim Moran and Congressman Frank R. Wolf to bring you information on private and government funding opportunities.
To maximize access to our services, we rely on volunteers. We selectively recruit undergrad and grad students and interested professionals with the right mix of experience and availability to help carry out our work. Please contact us if you are:
- A college or graduate student with analytic and computer skills and an interest in our research areas or;
- an experienced proposal writer or fund developer looking to share your expertise pro-bono
Working with us is a great place to build your career or a way to give back in retirement. Please contact Theresa Benincasa about opportunities to volunteer.
