The Washington Post Helping Hand, a charitable giving initiative started by The Post to help connect the D.C. community with local nonprofit organizations, seeks applications from human services nonprofits that work toward the prevention and remediation of hunger, homelessness and poverty in the Washington, D.C., area. Helping Hand has helped to raise more than $1.2 million for beneficiaries since 2017 and will kick off its third cycle this fall.

Over the course of a three-year commitment, The Post’s Helping Hand again will work with three selected organizations to share and promote high-impact stories about the people supported by their programs. The first set of these stories will begin running in late November as the 2021-2022 fundraising campaign kicks off and will appear in Local Columnist John Kelly’s column.

Nonprofits interested in becoming a beneficiary can submit Letters of Inquiry (LOI) beginning through July 23. More information on requirements for the LOI and the application are available here.
