Community Foundation Announces Grant Applications

The Community Foundation of Washington County MD announces the availability of grant applications for its 2019 Responsive Grants. This year’s grants focus on the development of a stronger community through high impact programs and initiatives within the following areas: family stability, including financial literacy, employment, mental health and basic needs; youth development with an emphasis on mentoring, school readiness and advocacy; and arts, recreation and educational opportunities for our youth and the under-served.

The Foundation does not fund endowment growth or capital campaigns. The grants committee may consider requests for operating funds on a case by case basis provided the applicant organization makes a compelling argument for such funding. Nonprofit organizations may apply for more than one program; however, each program requires a separate grant application.

Nonprofit organizations must be based in and primarily serving Washington County, Maryland, and have a current 501(c)(3) determination from the IRS. Online applications for the 2019 Responsive Grants are due November 15. Apply here.
