The Resilience Fund

In February 2017, the Greater Washington Community Foundation (Washington, DC) in partnership with the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation, established the Resilience Fund to respond to the critical needs of nonprofits working to support our region’s vulnerable communities as a result of changes in federal policy. To date, we have surpassed our $500,000 fundraising goal and extended it to $1 million total. The Fund announced its first round of grantees in August 2017, and an emergency grant in early September in response to the President’s decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
