Visit Loudoun Foundation
The mission of the Visit Loudoun Foundation is to support and broaden the health and prosperity of the hospitality and tourism industry in Loudoun County, Virginia.
In 2007 Visit Loudoun worked through the Northern Virginia Community Foundation to establish a scholarship fund in order to offer scholarships to graduating Loudoun County high school seniors for continuing education in the fields of tourism and hospitality studies.
In March of 2008, Visit Loudoun created the Visit Loudoun Foundation (previously called the Loudoun Destination Foundation) as a 501(c)3 charitable affiliate in order to continue providing scholarships, as well as coordinate/support educational programs, pursue market research opportunities, and assist in bringing employment opportunities to the tourism and hospitality industry of Loudoun.
