  • Collective Investment in the African American Community Who are we? The New Mountain Climbers Giving Circle was established in 2005. It was an outgrowth of The Community Group , an association formed to enhance and advance African American participation in Montgomery County civic development. The Community Group stresses the importance of economic investment in African American organizations and individuals as a crucial step toward assuring full civic participation. Created by B.

  • Who are we? The NMC Giving Circle was formed as a result of inspiration and technical assistance from Athan Lindsey and Darryl Lester of HindSights Consulting and founders of NGAAP Giving Circle.

  • “ Contributed significantly to our administrative operations and enhanced our aspirations by receiving these funds from the descendants of the historic Christiansburg Institute African American Community.” Christiansburg Institute " The New Mountain Climbers giving circle is a true inspiration to the Community Foundation. This African American community group has demonstrated that true development is really transformation. They have gone from being foundation grantees to becoming grant makers with a seat at the table of community philanthropy. Incredible! No other grantee of ours can tell this story.“ New River Valley Foundation “ Supported the Christiansburg Community Center tutorial program offering one–on-one homework assistance to children from kindergarten to twelfth grade.” The Christiansburg Community Center NMC IMPACT on the NRV “ Leveraging small resources for big, sustainable community change” Created by B.
