About Us

Mission: The mission of the Greenbelt Community Foundation is to promote community projects that build upon the ideals of collaboration, cooperation, and engagement through the generous participation of individuals and organizations.

Vision: Our Vision is for a thriving, engaged community that is socially responsible, environmentally conscious and supports education, the arts and sciences.

The Greenbelt Community Foundation (GCF) was established in 2006 to serve as a fund to support worthwhile projects in Greenbelt.

The Foundation awards 50% of unrestricted funds for grants each year while investing the remaining 50% to build the fund for the future. Most foundations only make 5% of their endowment funds available for grants. We exceed the norm.

To date, nearly $250,000 of this has been reinvested in the Greenbelt community, such as the Farmers Marker, alight dance theater, Camp Fire, Friends of the Greenbelt Theater, Maker’s Space and the Lady All Stars Basketball mentoring project.

The board, along with several City Council Members, helped celebrate GCF’s success at the 2017 Annual Meeting.
