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.
