Washington County Community Foundation hits the Top 100 List!!
"What's your foundation's asset size?" This is the most commonly asked question in the community foundation field. However, every community foundation is unique; assets represent just one way to describe how a community foundation operates. Other factors, such as grantmaking, fundraising, donor engagement, and community context all contribute to a community foundation's unique attributes and challenges.
A report recently published by CF Insights ranked the top 100 community foundations in the nation (there are over 770) by several categories, and one of those categories was Most Gifts per Capita. Washington County Community Foundation ranked 45th on this Top 100 List. “We have always known that our community is very generous and giving,” stated Judy Johnson, Executive Director of the Foundation. “Now we have some actual statistics to verify it. This ranking is especially wonderful considering the tough economic times we are in.”
The Community Foundation has been a force for improving lives and promoting philanthropy in Washington County since 1993. The Foundation has issued more than $3.1M in grants locally and secured over $9.9M in grants for our community from outside sources. Grants are generated by the more than 150 funds that comprise The Foundation's endowment, established and advanced by area individuals and families.
