Thanks to all those who attended our Changing Attitudes in Millennial Philanthropy Fund Kick-off Happy Hour!

Last Thursday, many excited and motivated young professionals came together to learn about The Community Foundation’s new initiative, C.H.A.M.P. (Changing Attitudes in Millennial Philanthropy) – a unique opportunity for young professionals to get directly involved with philanthropy through funding and volunteering at local nonprofit organizations in our region.

It was a great turn out at Mission Dupont with over 70 people in attendance!

This new initiative is an opportunity to engage millennials in giving their time, talents, and resources to ensure all residents of the metropolitan Washington region have access to safety net, education, and workforce development opportunities with the overarching goal of achieving economic security.

Economic security is possible when our youth graduates high school ready for college and careers; adult workers can obtain the skills and credentials needed to thrive in the region’s economy; and residents have basic human needs such as food and shelter. Through our investment of $90 million dollars in nonprofits in the region, we have brought together people and resources to tackle critical community issues, providing leadership, and ensuring that our region is safe, vibrant, and thriving for all residents.
