The WTOP Charity of the Month is
The WTOP Charity of the Month is the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
For five decades, the Greater Washington Community Foundation has ignited the power of philanthropy, catalyzed community impact, and responded to critical community needs.
As the region’s largest local funder, we have invested more than $1.4 billion in our community to build equitable, just, and thriving communities where everyone prospers. Now, our strategic focus – rooted in economic justice – is to close our region’s racial wealth gap so that people of all races, places, and identities reach their full potential.
In the wake of the pandemic rests a great and pressing opportunity – the opportunity to close the Greater Washington region’s racial wealth gap and right centuries of systemic injustices. Real progress towards this goal can only be achieved if we all come together and embrace this moment for catalytic change.
The Community Foundation is uniquely positioned to steward this necessary shift by leading with racial equity and inclusion in every aspect of our work, and by directing our efforts towards historically underinvested neighborhoods, with a special focus on Black-led organizations and communities of color.
We invite you to join The Community Foundation, as we work to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, works, and raises a family in this region. Because only by working together will we all prosper.
