Community Foundation for Southwest Washington
Strong communities have the ability to define and pursue solutions to local needs. This is why local leaders established the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington more than 30 years ago. Our community needed an organization that operates at the intersection of donors, nonprofits and civic interests to address the needs of our whole community. From this vantage point, our staff is able to spark critical conversations, make connections that move projects forward and grow philanthropic resources for our entire community.
In this spirit, the Community Foundation is utilizing the funds raised during Give More 24! to grow its Community Giving Fund. Every year, this community endowment grants funds to support dozens of local nonprofit projects and programs. Currently, these grants are focused on interrupting the cycle of poverty through causes of great concern in our community. It's work that has been made possible thanks to donors like you that have made generous gifts into the Community Giving Fund. Each of these heartfelt gifts have been pooled together and invested for growth, so that we can continue to improve our region’s collective well-being. And—because they are endowed—each gift endures forever, providing annual grants to the most effective and important programs in southwest Washington. By growing this lasting and flexible endowment, our region can continue to define and pursue a more prosperous future for all residents. So please join us. Invest today and let’s make southwest Washington a more vibrant community for the many tomorrows to come.
