The mission of The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region is to strengthen the Washington metropolitan region by encouraging and supporting effective giving and by providing leadership on critical issues in our community.
We are a community of givers, dedicated to inspiring and creating change across the Washington region and beyond. The Foundation, and our two regional affiliate foundations —The Community Foundation for Montgomery County and The Community Foundation for Prince George’s County — are part of a network of some 700 community foundations nationwide, each a tax-exempt, public charity made up of charitable giving funds established by individuals, families, corporations and other organizations. We currently manage more than 800 donor funds with assets totaling more than $360 million. We are the largest funder of nonprofit organizations in the metropolitan Washington region, with grants in FY2010 of more than $50 million.
