In 2018 the Greater Washington Community Foundation will celebrate its 45th anniversary! You’re invited to help us mark this special occasion at our 2018 Celebration of Philanthropy, which is the largest annual celebration of local philanthropy in the Greater Washington region.
Join us in celebrating the nonprofits, donors, and community members that work tirelessly to make our region a more vibrant and inclusive place to live. We are especially proud to award our 2018 Civic Spirit Award to Carol Thompson Cole, President and CEO of Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP), a native Washingtonian and government and philanthropic leader.
Attending the Celebration of Philanthropy is an experience unlike any other! You’ll take part in a community festival featuring live music, theatre, poetry, and dance performances from some of the region's most exciting nonprofits and local artists. These showcases are staggered throughout the evening and across the venue, allowing you to choose from a line-up of incredible acts while enjoying delicious food, an open bar, and networking with friends and colleagues.
Proceeds from our 45th Anniversary Celebration benefit The Community Foundation's Fund for Greater Washington, enabling us to make grants to effective nonprofits, to incubate new ideas, and to support our programmatic initiatives, operations, and advocacy. Through this Fund, The Community Foundation invests in effective safety net, education, and workforce development programs to help our most vulnerable neighbors achieve economic security.
We're happy to announce a visual update to Brushfire! But rest assured, all the functionality that you (and your customers) know and love hasn't changed.
Our goal is to continue making Brushfire more performant, visually appealing, and optimized for use on mobile devices. This is just the first of several updates we'll be rolling out in the coming months.
We hope you enjoy the new design! Stay tuned for more updates soon!
