Strengthening & Supporting the Nonprofit Sector

Over the last 40 years, The Community Foundation has awarded thousands of grants to nonprofits across the region – totaling over $70 million per year in grantmaking dollars. The Community Foundation is ranked among the top Community Foundations in the nation, and is the largest funder of nonprofits in the Washington Metropolitan region. (Please note that our ability to make grants depends on the source and availability of the grant funds.) Click to learn more about our grantmaking.

The Community Foundation focuses its Community Leadership work in three key areas—Education, Workforce Development and Safety Net —with the overarching goal of achieving economic security for all residents of the greater Washington region. Economic security is only possible when our youth graduate 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 feel secure with their basic human needs such as food and shelter. Click to learn more about our community leadership work.
