In 2009, The Washington Post expanded its longtime commitment to supporting education in the greater Washington region and established The Washington Post Charities as a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

The McCormick Foundation matches all donations to The Washington Post Charities at fifty cents on the dollar. With The Washington Post and the Foundation paying all campaign and administrative expenses, one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations.

All organizations undergo a thorough screening during the grant application process to ensure that only high-quality programs with proven results receive funding.

Since 2010, more than $400,000 in grants has been distributed through The Washington Post Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund improving the lives of those in need and transforming the community.
