We are pleased to bring you the 2019 edition of Our Region, Our Giving, the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers’ annual report on our members’ philanthropy in the District of Columbia, northern Virginia, and suburban Maryland. Over the past summer, we surveyed our membership on their 2018 giving and assets, the strategies they employ to achieve their philanthropic goals, and the changes they anticipate for their institutions over the next year. These funders represent a cross-section of the region’s philanthropic community, including independent, family, corporate, community, and public foundations, as well as corporate giving programs. While they have a diverse set of programmatic and geographic priorities, and a range of resources dedicated to philanthropy, they are united by a common commitment to WRAG’s mission of improving the health and vitality of the region and all who live here.
In the 2018 edition of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers’ Our Region, Our Giving report, we take a look at WRAG member giving in the Greater Washington region in 2017. This snapshot of our membership’s philanthropy represents over $217.6 million in giving to nonprofit organizations that serve the region and nearly $3.6 billion in assets.

Between the complex array of government programs, the many nonprofits organizations that have been created to serve post-9/11 veterans, and a lack of understanding of the needs on the part of civilians, it is hard to know if veterans are getting what they need. This edition of What Funders Need to Know explores some of the unique characteristics and circumstances of post-9/11 veterans and why philanthropy should support the nonprofit organizations that are serving them well.
