Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund

The application period opens on April 4, 2022.

For more than 40 years, Martha’s Table has worked to support strong children, strong families, and strong communities in DC so that every Washingtonian can stay and thrive.

Knowing that one’s neighborhood influences access to resources, we are doubling down on our investment in the communities we stand alongside.

We also believe that our neighbors know best what their communities want and need to thrive. In 2021, over 1,000 neighbors shaped Martha’s Table’s 5 -Year Strategic Plan. What we heard loud and clear from them is the need for direct investments to help grassroots organizations build capacity.

Announcing the Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund

In response, we are proud to launch the Community Impact Fund at The Greater Washington Community Foundation. Through this fund, we will support and strengthen grassroots organizations in Ward 8 that have been historically excluded from institutional philanthropy and whose leadership and staff reflect the demographic composition and lived experiences of the communities they serve.

The next information session about eligibility, the application process, and how to join the Review Committee will be held on May 3 at 11 am.

Volunteer to Serve on the Review Committee

Martha’s Table work is continually informed by the expertise and voice of the neighbors we stand alongside. We are seeking Ward 8 residents to serve on the Review Committee.

It’s our hope the committee will reflect the diversity of neighbors and a variety of lived experiences including parents, seasoned citizens, returning citizens, young adults, members of the LGBTQIA community, and those living with a disability.

Reviewers will bring to the selection process the benefits of their life experience, diverse outlooks, and local knowledge. They will be committed to objectively reviewing applications to ensure that grantees are selected in a fair and consistent way.
