In The Community
In addition to housing over 325 funds and providing $20 million in grants, the Community Foundation stays actively involved in the Washington County community through various programs and events.
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 took place on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 and raised $672,000. Visit www.washingtoncountygives.org for a list of participating nonprofits and more information.
The Washington County Scholarship website www.washingtoncountyscholarships.org provides Washington County students with access to information regarding current scholarships.
