In the Community

The Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc. serves as a vehicle for philanthropy and a powerful force in improving the quality of life in Washington County. We work with individuals, families and businesses to create funds that help meet their charitable goals and give to the causes they care about the most. Established in 1997, the Foundation has grown from one fund worth $9,000 to more than 400 funds valued at over $60 million. We have distributed over $32 million in grants and scholarships since inception. By promoting philanthropy in every field of interest and capacity, we can manage special fundraising projects as well, such as endowment challenges, emergency relief campaigns and Washington County Gives. Additionally, the Community Foundation stays actively involved in the Washington County community through various programs and events.
