Welcome to the Takoma Foundation
Building community and changing lives
The Takoma Foundation raises funds and makes grants to advance the social, environmental, economic, educational and cultural interests of the greater Takoma Park community. The Foundation focuses its grant-giving on projects that empower individuals, break down barriers, build connections between people and expand community capacity.
Since 1989 the Takoma Foundation has given away nearly $350,000 to groups that make Takoma Park the great place it is to live and work.
Who is Crossroads?
It’s the farmers, the food vendors, and all the other small business owners who come together each week, and we are thrilled to tell their amazing stories. This summer, Crossroads Community Food Network staff and participants collaborated with Meridian Hill Pictures to create short docs about three recent graduates of our Microenterprise Training Program who are now helping Crossroads to build up our local food system, right here in Takoma Park.
