Making a Difference in Our Region

Giving directly to the Greater Washington Community Foundation helps support our ongoing work to create lasting change in our community.

We also have Sharing programs in D.C., and Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland, led by volunteer committees that select nonprofit organizations whose programs and activities are directly related to our funding priorities of education, workforce development and safety net issues. Through pooling resources our donors have greater impact together – in their own local communities.
