Charity of Excellence 25th Anniversary Initiative To celebrate the Washington County Community Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2020, 25 local non‐profit organizations were selected as a Charity of Excellence. Through an open and competitive process, applicants were evaluated on the quality and variety of their programming, community impact as gauged by the number of people served relative to the operating budget, volunteer engagement, and the organization’s financial improvement over the last five years. Each honoree received an unrestricted grant of at least $5,000. Blueprints received the top award of $25,000. A total of $150,000 in grants was awarded from the Alvin and Carol Berthold Fund through this initiative. The Charity of Excellence honorees are featured throughout this Alvin & Carol Berthold publication with a mini profile and the special Charity of Excellence seal.

Visit the Charity Storybook Website for Amazing Impact Stories One of the most important components in selecting our 25 Charity of Excellence honorees was a volunteer testimonial from each applying organization. These testimonials eventually served as the basis for a special series of impact stories shared on our Heart of Giving Charity Storybook website about the special volunteers that serve as the heart of so many nonprofits. Readers were invited to support their favorite Charity of Excellence by visiting their story page. The nonprofit with the most readers, the Washington Area Humane Society, received the People’s Choice Award, which included a $5,000 unrestricted grant. All 25 of these inspiring stories can be read online at storybook.wccf.net.

Pandemic Response:

Close to Home Disaster and Emergency Fund

Emergency Grants Offered Critical Support When It Was Needed Most It did not take long for the ripple effects of the COVID‐19 global pandemic to reach Washington County. Although the virus was immediately identified as a healthcare crisis, it soon became apparent that the pandemic was going to be a multi‐faceted issue that would impact education, the economy, and the charitable sector in ways no one could have anticipated. With the financial support of many local donors, the Foundation’s Close to Home Disaster and Emergency Fund began issuing grants in March 2020. Businesses were shut down, leaving many without a paycheck. So, food insecurity emerged as an immediate major need. It would take the government time to react; however, the WCCF was able to very quickly issue grants at the start of the pandemic to help fight hunger in our communities. Food insecurity remained a cause for concern for the months to come, and by the end of 2020, the fund had issued $217,000 for emergency feeding programs. When the shortage of personal protective equipment for health care workers and patients became a serious issue, the Foundation shifted its grant‐making focus to helping local health care providers. In total, over $100,000 was awarded for the purchase of essential medical supplies and equipment. During quarantine, instances of domestic violence were on the rise. Needy parents were in search of supplies for their infants. And literacy students were without work and without the safety net of government assistance. These human service programs received support totaling $85,000 from the fund. The world of education was turned upside down when the safest place for students to learn was a virtual classroom. Families without the means for internet access or computers needed swift, creative solutions, and the Foundation responded by providing all 14 Washington County public school districts with a grant for technology that could address their particular needs. In total, grants of $95,000 were awarded in support of education. By December 31, the Close to Home Disaster & Emergency Fund had awarded more than $500,000 in response to the COVID‐19 pandemic.
