A culture of philanthropy
The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation is the major philanthropic organization for The Washington Companies and the Washington family. Funding for the Foundation comes primarily from personal contributions from the Washington Family and annual contributions from the Montana-based Washington Companies. Since its inception, Foundation giving and the Washington Family’s personal contributions and pledges to charitable causes total more than $244 million.
The Foundation’s values mirror those of our Western heritage. We hold fast to our sense of place and are actively involved in the communities where we live and work. We believe in the individual spirit, but at the same time we know how important a strong support network is to the enhancement of all our lives. The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation strives to better the human condition by supporting programs and services that give people the tools to enhance the quality of their lives and to benefit society as a whole.
