The Greater Washington Community Foundation Releases the VoicesDMV Report

VoicesDMV is a community engagement initiative designed to help philanthropy, community leaders, policymakers and others better understand the diverse experiences of the people who live and work in the Greater Washington region. VoicesDMV uplifts community voice and informs community investments by The Community Foundation and our partners.

VoicesDMV consists of:

  • Conducted in partnership with Gallup, the VoicesDMV Community Insights Report presents findings from a comprehensive survey of residents from across the region. The report is designed to help us, our philanthropic, nonprofit, and community partners, and others understand how residents are doing, what challenges they are facing, what their hopes and dreams for the future are, and how they view important issues including homelessness, safety, economic issues, and much more.

  • The Voices DMV Community Action Awards provide grants to nonprofits working to make our region more equitable and inclusive by addressing issues and challenges highlighted in the Community Insights report. Click here to view the 2024 Community Action Awards RFP!

  • The VoicesDMV Fellowship supports individuals deeply rooted in our priority areas to facilitate deeper engagement between The Community Foundation, residents, and organizations in the priority areas to ensure authentic community voice is at the center of our work.
