Washington Grantmakers and the Prince George’s Community Foundation put out the call: Who wants to maximize the effectiveness of philanthropy in Prince George’s County, Maryland? Five standing-room-only sessions. Funders, nonprofits, government leaders, community activists. Together at last, they spoke about opportunities and lessons learned. Unrealized potential. They agreed that something had to change.
Launching in early 2008, The Partnership for Prince George’s County will connect the people who live, work, learn, and play in Prince George’s County to each other and to the region. The network will build strategic alliances among County stakeholders, and the region’s grantmakers will pool their funds to strengthen the County’s nonprofit community.
