Our Giving Philosophy
Since 1997, the World Bank Group has recognized the need for individual and corporate responsibility where we live and work. We believe in putting the Bank Group's principles and purpose into action for the region's underserved residents and work to strengthen communities through our funding efforts, employee volunteerism and community collaborations.
Our Funding Priorities
We are committed to strengthening the Greater Washington region's nonprofit sector by providing capacity building support, program evaluation support and general support to education and youth serving organizations with an emphasis on Wards 6, 7 and 8, east of the Anacostia River in Washington, DC. It is our hope that we can help the residents of these wards address the issues of poverty and inadequate educational opportunities while promoting community engagement.
