Get involved with Sharing Montgomery and Sharing DC!
The Community Foundation is excited to announce that our Sharing Montgomery and Sharing DC grantmaking processes are underway for the 2013-2014 cycle. Led by a committee of Community Foundation donors, Sharing is a collaborative grantmaking process that gives donors the opportunity to attend site visits to learn first-hand and together about the challenges faced by the area’s most vulnerable residents, and witness the work of high-performing nonprofits that are addressing these challenges. Community Foundation donors with Donor Advised Funds who are interested in giving locally are welcome to attend Sharing site visits.
Since its inception, Sharing Montgomery has awarded more than $3 million in grants to some of the most effective nonprofit organizations serving Montgomery County’s low–income residents. Building on the success of Sharing Montgomery, The Community Foundation launched Sharing DC in October of this year with plans to award $150,000 to Washington, D.C. organizations for its first grant cycle! The Community Foundation will continue to expand the Sharing model with Sharing Prince George’s in the Spring of 2014.
