In 2012 the Reston Runners Board decided to further the Club's mission of "encouraging fitness" by establishing a Community Fund which will be used to grant scholarships and other worthwhile donations to local students, schools, and community organizations. The Fund is a separate and distinct non-profit corporation whose funds will not be comingled with the Club's general revenue. The Fund will be seeking to establish revenues from a wide variety of sources, including tax-deductible contributions from its members. Its governing organization includes both members of the Reston Runners Board of Directors and members of the community.
The mission of the Reston Runners Community Fund is to operate a charitable fund to receive contributions, hold, manage, administer and expend funds and property, for the purpose of encouraging fitness by providing financial support for athletics and scholarship in the Reston area.
