The Community Foundation’s DC Office of Philanthropy and Donor Services works closely with individuals, families, and businesses to match donor intent with community opportunity to create deeper local impact. We serve an important role in the District of Columbia as a bridge between generous individuals, government and business organizations, and local nonprofits.
Sharing DC is a strategic, donor-led funding effort for generous residents of the District. Sharing DC facilitates education and civic engagement around local issues by bringing donors together to learn, first-hand, about the challenges facing Washington’s most vulnerable residents and engage in a grant review process for investing in organizations that are working to make a difference in the lives of children and families in the District of Columbia. Last year, Sharing DC donors awarded over $140,000 in grants to help youth access and be successful in post-secondary education and training, including traditional college and university credentials and industry recognized certifications. This year, the Committee’s focus area is homelessness prevention and intervention.
