Washington Aids Partnership: Changing the Course of an Epidemic 1988-2023

In the early 1980s, the HIV/AIDS epidemic was spreading rapidly, creating fear and devastating communities. Eager to take action, the Ford Foundation invited the Washington, D.C. region, which had the fifth-highest infection rate in the nation, to become one of its partner sites in local-level response. The priority: “make grants to the community as quickly as possible.” Twenty Washington, D.C.-area foundations, led by the Meyer Foundation, joined together to match the Ford Foundation funding of $500,000 and launch an unprecedented philanthropic response.
