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.
S4G Receives Commendation and State Recognition from Delegate Holly Seibold
2024 Social AND Good Projects
In February, S4G Hosted An Incredible Evening + Provided Supplies and Enrichment for Underserved Students!
S4G raised over $5,000 to support the Belong!'s after-school mentoring program
Financial donations will be used to support field trips and enrichment opportunities and in-kind donations provided educational resources and games for Belong!'s growing program.
The project culminated in an engaging Build & Learn event with dinner, craft activities, the creation of a mural that reflects the value of Belong!'s program, and quality time spent with the students and mentors!
In January, S4G Provided Essential Supplies to At-Risk Babies!
S4G raised $4,570 to support the Jennifer Bush Lawson Foundation’s Nursery Project (JBLF).
Financial donations will be used by JBLF to purchase: car seats to ensure at-risk babies leave the hospital and travel safely; and pack-n-plays to support safe sleep. In-kind donations created breastfeeding kits to support a healthy breastfeeding relationship.
Each gift to new moms and babies was accompanied by a note of encouragement written by S4G members.
ABOUT SOCIAL AND GOOD
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 43 Northern Virginia Nonprofits with in-kind and financial support totalling over $225,000. Our work has been recognized by Delegate Holly Seibold, 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.
