The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation funds organizations that accurately identify and address needs consistent with our mission and scope. These organizations successfully provide programs and services that give youth, economically and socially disadvantaged individuals, families, and those with special needs, the tools they need to succeed in life.
Education taps the immeasurable potential of the mind. Reaching children through early childhood education, after-school learning programs, and post-secondary and graduate scholarships helps our young people get the start they deserve. Providing higher education scholarships and funding educational programs helps build a strong educational foundation for future leaders.
Health and Human Services ensures the vitality of the human body and spirit. We target programs that ensure access to basic health care to the most vulnerable members of our communities, as well as programs that educate our youth about wellness, nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyles. We also support experiential programs that offer disabled or disadvantaged people opportunities they may not have otherwise.
Arts and Culture represents the innovation and creativity of a society. Through cultural endeavors, we help bring people together to share their creative talents, intellects, passions, customs, and bold initiatives to explore new ways of doing things. In the areas of theatre, art, and music, the Foundation’s grants have helped organizations reach a broader audience, infused new life into programs, and created long-lasting cultural traditions within our communities.
Community Service touches the lives of everyone where they work, play, and live. Despite our individual differences, we are linked by common interests to do more for the places we call home. The Foundation invests in organizations that fortify this connection. When each person is involved in one way or another in the improvement of their community, the community is enhanced.
