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. Your contributions to the Fund for Greater Washington allow us to provide vital resources to civic and community organizations, incubate new ideas, and conduct programmatic initiatives and advocacy – as we invest to make this a thriving, resilient, and enriching place for all who call our region home.

You can also make a gift to our Sharing programs in DC, Montgomery County or Prince George’s County. Led by volunteer committees, donors come together to learn about and select effective nonprofit organizations which focus on offering education, workforce development, and safety net programs. Through pooling resources our donors have an even greater impact together in their own local communities.
