2018 Celebration of Philanthropy

  • Monday, Mar 12, 2018 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM EDT

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.
