Sharing Montgomery Fund (thecommunityfoundation.org)
Established more than 20 years ago, the Montgomery County office of the Greater Washington Community Foundation was created to make it easier for county residents and businesses to give to the causes most dear to their hearts, anywhere in the world. The Community Foundation also pools contributions from hundreds of people through Sharing Montgomery, a fund that supports local education, workforce development and safety-net nonprofits that serve our low-income neighbors. The Community Foundation’s staff and donor-led committees conduct a rigorous annual vetting process that evaluates each applicant for strong leadership, fiscal management and program excellence. With a gift to Sharing Montgomery, a donor can touch the lives of thousands of neighbors today while also working to build more equitable, just and enriching communities where all residents can live, work and thrive.
