Washington’s most generous benefactors.
Washington area benefactors have continued to hold the line, making up for government deficits and keeping things running as smoothly as possible in communities that need it the most. Family foundations are the backbone of giving in the nation’s capital, but technology is making it easier than ever for individuals to give in any number of ways both large and small.
Our Philanthropic 50 benefactors give much and often, with special emphasis on healthcare, education, children and the arts. Our list, by no means definitive, aims to highlight Washington’s grand tradition of giving. To those individuals — and generous spirits everywhere — we salute you!
