A Season to Give Thanks to Our Valued Friends and Partners

As 2017 comes to a close, we are so thankful for the generosity of The Community Foundation's donors and for the commitment of our nonprofit partners who make our community development work possible. Together, we are contributing to a more vibrant, equitable, and inclusive community for all who call the Greater Washington region home.

For going on 45 years, The Community Foundation has brought together people and resources to tackle critical community issues. We want to acknowledge and extend our deepest thanks this holiday season to the amazing nonprofit partners that work tirelessly to help strengthen the Greater Washington region.

We are excited to share with you the robust list of organizations who were rigorously vetted and selected to receive one of the nearly 200 grant awards issued through our competitive and discretionary grant rounds during our current fiscal year to date! These grants, totaling in excess of $6 million, include investments across the region focused on a diverse set of issues from education and workforce development, support for immigrant communities, strengthening the safety net, and preserving the natural environment.

On behalf of everyone here at The Community Foundation, we look forward to continuing to work with you in the new year to strengthen the Greater Washington region.

Tonia Wellons,
VP Community Investment
