Corporate Donors, Sponsors and Friends of the Farm

The key to growing our organization is developing the right relationships with local business and organizations that can make a real difference in the work we do. Corporate donors, local sponsors and "Friends of the Farm" are who really help to provide the funding, guidance and support to ensure we are able to continue to offer our programs free of charge to all those who need it.

100 Women Strong

100WomenStrong is an organization founded in 2008 by people who have made a commitment to improve the quality of life for residents of Loudoun County, Virginia. In 2016, they donated the money for us to build our first greenhouse, and it has changed our entire organization. We can now offer programs in the early spring, grow our own seedlings, and grow flowers and produce for local businesses for donations.


Temple Hall Farm

If it weren't for Ben and the folks at Temple Hall Farm, Legacy Farms would not be were we are today. We owe everything to them and are very grateful to the donation of land, the guidance and support and most of all, their patience in dealing with a new nonprofit still learning the ways of the world.

In 2015, Temple Hall Farm donated a piece of land we call home today. Since then they have allowed us to build a greenhouse, expand our program and much more. We will be forever grateful for all they do for us, and those we serve.

Quantis Wealth management

The Quantis Team has helped Legacy Farms by providing sponsorships to help cover the cost of services for our Spring Program. This year, they donated $1500.00. Each month, Quantis chooses a cause or nonprofit to help and have been very active in the Northern Virginia area. We are very grateful for the help and support of Rick and his team at Quantis.

Quantis was so inspired by the work we do, they have begun working on a program that will educate local families with disabilities on how to prepare themselves, and their children for the future.


Loudoun Cares

Legacy Farms is still growing and recently enlisted the amazing folks at Loudoun Cares to aide in the development of our board governance. Their mission is to build and serve our Loudoun community through collaborative partnerships to meet the health and human service needs of our residents.


FedStar LLC

Each year, FedStar commits significant financial support and product donations to the local school Autism programs as well, staying true to our objective by helping to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Our staff members devote hundreds of hours volunteering their time and talent to strengthening and enriching their communities.

Just this Spring, Rob helped Legacy Farms by planning, organizing and framing the concrete foundation our new greenhouse is on, which has led to some bug changes at the farm.


The Awesome Foundation: NoVa Chapter

The Awesome Foundation is a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1000 at a time.

Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, $1000 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter's "trustees" and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.

Salon Khouri

For the last two years, Salon Khouri has helped us raise money for our garden. This year they are running a fundraiser to help raise enough money for us to build a Solar Powered Ventilation System for our greenhouse.  Salon Khouri is passionate about supporting our local community and has participated in multiple service initiatives since 2005. From fundraising for hurricane victims, to food and gift drives, to raising awareness for childhood cancer, the Salon Khouri team has contributed hundreds of hours to charitable events, and the salon has been blessed with donating thousands of dollars through our community outreach program.
