Launched in August 2019, Social4Good (S4G) educates, engages, and empowers women to make a difference in Northern Virginia.  Each month, S4G provides opportunities to learn about critical needs while identifying clear, actionable ways to support those needs with small donations that collectively make a big difference to our local nonprofit partners.


Each month, S4G forms a team to work with local nonprofits to identify and fulfill their critical need, as well as to plan an opportunity for members to engage with each other as they learn more about the nonprofit's mission and our impact.

From creating Welcome Bags for children entering a homeless shelter with something new to call their own, to purchasing cleaning products, making fleece blankets, and creating baskets for formerly incarcerated women or Veterans to take to their new homes, every month offers members ways to pool their funds to make an impact. Most months, members are asked to sponsor purchases in increments of $25 - a small amount with big results.

Since August 2019, S4G has supported 35 Northern Virginia Nonprofits with in-kind and financial support totalling over $175,000.  Our work has been recognized by Leadership Fairfax and Vienna Mayor's Volunteer Award.  Our founder, Faith Boettger, was recognized by Nonprofit HR as a 2022 Outstanding Social Impact Woman to Watch.
