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.
