National Capital Region

WASHINGTON, June 17, 2009 — Tatum, LLC, the nation’s largest executive services firm focused on providing solutions for the Office of the CFO, is collaborating with Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP), a philanthropic investment organization, to grant financial leadership services to nonprofit organizations in the National Capital Region (DC Metro).

The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region announced today that its Neighbors in Need Fund is awarding $455,000 in grants to 27 charities that provide essential services such as food, clothing, emergency financial assistance, and shelter to needy residents in Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, MD, and the District of Columbia. Two additional grants totaling $40,000 will help community-based nonprofit organizations work more efficiently during and beyond these difficult economic times. The Neighbors in Need Fund is the only regionwide grantmaking program of its kind.

Foundations in the Washington metropolitan area granted nearly $186 million in 2006 to locally-focused organizations in Greater Washington, according to Giving by Foundations in the National Capital Region, a report released today by the Foundation Center, with support from the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation.
