The Greater Washington Community Foundation provides vital resources to civic and community organizations, incubates new ideas, convenes partners to address community issues, and conducts programmatic initiatives and advocacy.
Using a systems change approach, the Fund has three distinct focus areas: Addressing poverty, deepening culture and human connection, and preparing for the future of work.
Since 1973, the Greater Washington Community Foundation has been a champion of thriving communities in the greater Washington DC area and a catalyst for change made possible through local philanthropic engagement, effective community investment, and civic leadership. The community foundation works with donors and partners to make a real difference every day by joining together resources and focusing on shared interests to increase impact. As the region’s largest local funder, the Greater Washington Community Foundation has invested more than $1.2 billion to build more equitable, just, and enriching communities where all residents can live, work, and thrive. The mechanism to give to the Greater Washington Community Foundation is through the Fund for Greater Washington.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
