Since 1973, the Greater Washington Community Foundation has been a champion for thriving communities and catalyst for change by mobilizing philanthropy and investing critical resources to strengthen our communities. Through decades of experience in emergency philanthropy, The Community Foundation has become one of our region’s most trusted partners to help those in need, especially during times of crisis.
Since March 2020, The Community Foundation has led the region’s largest coordinated philanthropic response effort to meet the urgent needs of our community. Thanks to the generosity of so many, we have mobilized critical support through the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund to expand access to food, shelter, medical care, remote learning support, legal aid, and other vital services for our neighbors facing hardship.
Your generosity ensures we can continue to respond to urgent needs today as we work toward building an equitable recovery and brighter future for all who call our region their home. Together, we can bring hope and healing to our community.
The Greater Washington Community Foundation is our region’s largest local funder – having invested more than $1.3 billion in our community since 1973. We partner with our region’s donors, nonprofits, and local governments to build more equitable and just communities where all residents can live, work, and thrive.
