In The Community
In addition to housing over 285 funds and providing $18 million in grants, the Community Foundation stays actively involved in the Washington County community through various programs and events.
By partnering with the Pauline Anderson Foundation, Mathias Charitable Trust, Agnita Stine Schreiber Foundation, United Way of Washington County and Washington County Public Schools, the Community Foundation provides an age appropriate book once a month to more than 1,000 of the neediest children from birth to five in our community.
In 2000, the Community Foundation established the annual People’s Choice Awards as a way to honor the unsung heroes who give generously and unselfishly of their time, talents and abilities to improve the quality of life in Washington County.
Sponsored by the Community Foundation of Washington County to help raise unrestricted dollars for local nonprofits, Washington County Gives is a 24-hour, online giving day. This year’s event on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 raised $713,327. Visit www.washingtoncountygives.org for more information.
In 2014, the Foundation launched www.washingtoncountyscholarships.org to provide Washington County students with access to information regarding current scholarships.
