Building a Better Community

Building a better community

At Van Metre, not only do we build communities, we build Community. We are invested in making Northern Virginia a better place by giving our time, energy, and resources to the people we serve. 


Where do we start?

In 2019, for the first 250 homes sold, Van Metre Homes will donate $1,000 each to the Van Metre Companies Foundation—continuing the dedication to local communities we’ve had for over sixty years. The Van Metre Companies Foundation, in turn, will donate this money to local 501(c) charities that do great work to continue Van Metre’s mission of building not only community but Community.

At Van Metre, giving back to the local community goes way back to our founder, Albert G. Van Metre. A lifelong resident of the greater Washington, DC area, he established a tradition of philanthropy focusing on local charities. As a homegrown business, perpetuating that legacy of local giving is our responsibility, and our pride.

The Van Metre Companies Foundation was formed in May of 2014 and is run by a group of employees who serve as the Board of Directors. These officers have full discretion for the disbursement of funds held by the Foundation, which provides financial support to qualified educational, medical, human and animal welfare services, and other 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.




Thank you all for participating in the 27th Annual Van Metre 5 Mile Run and One Mile Fun Run/Walk. This year, we raised over $230,000 for Children’s National Medical Center! Thank you to all the runners, walkers, volunteers, and generous sponsors. We couldn’t have done it without you. This is one of our favorite events of the year and we’re already looking forward to big and exciting changes in 2020. Stay tuned.



The 8th Annual Van Metre Cornhole Challenge will be part of the Brambleton Fall Festival. 32 teams will participate and raise money for local charities chosen by Van Metre employees. You can challenge last year’s winners, The Intercocktails, who not only raised significant funds for the event but took home the coveted Golden Bag trophies. Come out and join the fun on Saturday, October 5th, 2019!
