The Community Foundation envisions a region where equity, access and opportunity are available to all residents. Our work is designed to ensure a bright future for the residents of Prince George’s County by helping people achieve economic security and build a better life for themselves and their families.

The Foundation’s efforts to help residents attain economic security is achieved through its community leadership work that focuses primarily on three issue areas.

Each area is designed to achieve a critical community goal:


Safety Net
Strengthen and preserve the safety net to meet basic human needs (i.e., food and shelter)


Prepare youth to graduate high school ready for college and careers

Grad-Cap-IconWorkforce Development
Help workers gain and acquire the skills and credentials needed to thrive in the region’s economy


We employ a broad range of strategies to achieve community impact including:

  • Grantmaking
  • Leveraging Resources
  • Capacity Building
  • Convening
  • Commissioning Research
  • Donor Education and Engagement
  • Philanthropic Advisory Services
  • Technical Assistance and Advising
  • Acting as an Advocate for our Community
