Grant Opportunities: Washington D.C., Maryland, Virgina (DMV). Cafritz Foundation in five program areas: arts and humanities, community services, education, environment, and health and wellness

Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation invites applications from nonprofits in the D.C. area
Founded in 1948, the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation is deeply committed to improving the quality of life for all Washington, D.C. metropolitan area residents.
The foundation invites applications for its grants program, through which it aims to improve the lives of D.C.-area residents, with an emphasis on creating a more equitable region. Grants are awarded in five program areas: arts and humanities, community services, education, environment, and health and wellness. While most of the foundation’s grants are for general operating support, there are some instances when project-specific requests are more appropriate, including national organizations with local affiliations, large institutions such as universities and hospitals, as well as other organizations that would like to restrict their grant to support a specific need. 
To be eligible, applicants must be IRS-registered, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organizations with a public charity status of 509(a)(1) or 509(a)(2) only. Organizations must serve residents in the District of Columbia, the Maryland counties of Prince George’s or Montgomery, or the Virginia counties of Arlington or Fairfax or the cities of Alexandria or Falls Church.
The portal opens on June 1, 2024, for the July 1, 2024 deadline.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation website.

Representatives from nonprofits considering applying to the Foundation for funding are invited to a virtual meeting with a member of our staff. 

Attendees will have the chance to learn about the Foundation’s interests and giving priorities and to ask questions about the proposal and review processes. 

This conversation is most relevant for Executive Directors or development staff from organizations that have not received prior grants from the Foundation.

Sessions are held in February, June and October, the month before each of the Foundation’s deadlines.  The forums are free, but registration is required to attend.
