who we are

In our ongoing commitment to championing philanthropy across the Greater Washington Region, we have evolved our identity to better reflect our mission. Formerly the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, we are now Philanthropy DMV.

Our organization has long been a cornerstone of philanthropy in the DMV area, advocating for social change and building strong community partnerships. We are proud of the legacy WRAG has built and are excited to carry this legacy forward under the Philanthropy DMV identity.

We are reaffirming our dedication to inclusivity, collaboration, and our shared vision of a thriving and equitable region.

Our members come from across the philanthropic sector in the Greater Washington region. As a collective we’re best positioned to leverage wisdom, take meaningful risks, and drive change.
