"Remember when posting credit card information online was edgy and controversial? Neither do I. Now meet ACTion Alexandria – the hyper-engaged, hyper-grassroots outreach arm of Alexandria’s ACT for Alexandria community foundation.

Alexandrians are generous. So generous, in fact, that online-giving giant Convio has ranked Alexandria as its most generous online-giving city for the last three years. (Arlington has come in third for the last two years, with Cambridge, MA, wedging itself in second place).

As ACTion Alexandria’s community manager, knows of the city’s generosity firsthand. Her job is to get ACTion Alexandria “out there in the community and be a source of information and news, and to mobilize people to increase their civic engagement and philanthropy,” with philanthropy defined broadly from volunteering to fundraising."
