The Washington County Opportunity Fund is an unrestricted community grant fund. The Fund was created by the generosity of individuals who have contributed money to the Foundation for charitable use to address the present and future needs of Washington County.
From this endowed fund, the Foundation Board annually determines and designates the amount of available funding in the form of community grants.
The Foundation’s Washington County Opportunity Fund accepts applications once a year in the spring. Specific dates are announced annually through a press release in the local newspapers and on our website. Applications received outside of the grant cycle are not accepted.
The applications are open to a variety of issues and target populations. However, successful applications are those that will help fulfill the Foundation’s mission to improve the quality of life for Washington County.
All non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply as well as groups and individuals working on a charitable community project. For-profit organizations will not be considered unless the request is for a charitable project. Grants will be limited to projects within Washington County.
All applicants will need to fill out a grant application form through our online grant system.
