Grant Process

Washington Forrest Foundation Grant Process

The Washington Forrest Foundation’s grant process is one that focuses on relationship building through ongoing engagement and communication. The process is designed to be more than a transactional encounter between a funder and a nonprofit. The Washington Forrest Foundation considers its grantees as partners, co-creators who are jointly committed to the ongoing strength and vitality of Arlington County.
