The Greater Washington Community Foundation is offering small awards of up to $2,000 to individuals and nonprofits in Greater Washington working to make their region a more equitable and inclusive place for everyone to live, work, and thrive.
- Developing an oral history project focused on immigrant restaurant owners that will humanize these individuals and document their stories of resilience, immigration, entrepreneurship, and food cultures alongside a virtual portrait photography exhibit.
- Supporting an awareness building campaign of Mutual Aid Networks and the resources they can provide for vulnerable neighborhood residents to address the impact of COVID-19.
- Developing a community mural created by diverse young people that will provide confidence and a sense of place within the community while also beautifying the neighborhood.
- Using existing technologies, a group of neighbors will train local residents to document, report, & upload data describing litter in the community, thus creating “heat maps” that can be used to prioritize areas needing additional attention and resources.
