Lola C. Reinsch, a Continuing Charitable Supporter of the Virginia Chamber Orchestra through the Reinsch Pierce Family Foundation, has been designated as the 2023 Arts Fairfax Philanthropy Award Honoree.
As announced in a news release by ArtsFairfax, "the Philanthropy Award recognizes an individual, corporation, or foundation that has provided leadership funding or long-term monetary support to the arts."
President, Owner, and CEO of the Reinsch Companies, a residential housing and golf course community developer and owner of real estate entities, including multifamily housing communities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida, Ms. Reinsch is an avid supporter and patron of healthcare, education, and the arts.
She founded the Reinsch Pierce Family Foundation in 2010 and has a long history of supporting many of the region’s arts and culture organizations. Through her family foundation, and before that, the Emerson G. & Dolores G. Reinsch Foundation, Ms. Reinsch has strengthened many Northern Virginia nonprofits, including 1st Stage, Arlington Community Foundation, Arlington Philharmonic, Tysons McLean Orchestra, Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington, Synetic Theater, Signature Theatre, and Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, among others.
Most notably, Ms. Reinsch has been an invaluable supporter of the Virginia Chamber Orchestra and McLean Project for the Arts. She has served on the Orchestra’s Honorary Board for 29 years and has significantly increased annual giving as their “match donor” for the past seven years.
