Serving the region’s 5.5 million residents, particularly the most underserved, means understanding both the regional and local needs of our communities.

The Community Foundation has a regional focus with a local presence, serving communities throughout the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, and Prince George's County. Having deep local expertise in our service areas allows us to more effectively address the most pressing needs and opportunities facing our communities.


District of Columbia

Our regional office is based in the District, but our DC Office of Philanthropy and Donor Services is specifically dedicated to stewarding donors whose philanthropy is focused on the District's challenges and opportunities. 

Prince George's County

Our work is designed to ensure a brighter future for the residents of Prince George’s County by helping people achieve economic security and build a better quality of life for themselves and their families.

Montgomery County

We play an important community leadership role in Montgomery County serving as a bridge between those who want to give — including generous individuals and families, local government and businesses — and the local nonprofit organizations leading the work on critical issues.
