Montgomery Village Foundation Office CLOSED
During this unusual time, Montgomery Village Foundation’s (MVF) priority has been maintaining safe environments for our residents, staff, program participants and community visitors. We continue to monitor the changing climate around COVID-19 health concerns and are following state, county and local jurisdiction lead for preparedness and closure information.
Due to Governor Hogan's Executive Order to close non-essential businesses, the MVF Office is currently closed.
As of 5 p.m. on Monday, March 23, MVF is closed until further notice. While our doors are not open, there are opportunities for you to get information from MVF. Use this website or our social media channels, mainly Facebook and Twitter, for general questions and direction to appropriate staff, as well as a source for any future changes in operations. Any physical communication (assessment payments by check, activity card rights forms) can be left in the drop-box in the Apple Ridge parking lot.
Until such time as the Executive Order is lifted, residents can expect the following:
All MVF community centers remain closed to the public.
MVF Parks are open, however, visitors are encouraged not to use playground equipment. Avoid contact with surfaces touched by others and participating in activities involving physical contact.
Please follow these guidelines from Montgomery Parks:
Events & Activities
All classes, programs and private rentals are cancelled; facilities are not currently available for rent.

Additionally, payments by check can be placed in the drop box in the Apple Ridge parking lot (no cash payments accepted in the drop box). If you need information about your payoff amount, set up a free account on the MVF website.
All meetings in MVF facilities have been cancelled (through April 30).

As reminded by the CDC and other agencies, MVF continues to stress the importance of washing hands, avoiding close contact (especially with those who are coughing, sneezing or showing other sickness), remaining calm, being smart with choices of travel and positioning yourself to stay as healthy as possible. We encourage residents to visit the Montgomery County Health and Human Services or CDC websites.
Thank you for your continued patience and support while we all strive to keep our friends, neighbors and families safe during this challenging time.
