DC Community

We give back to the community that has given so much to us.

Since the late 1980s, our Foundation has invested in area organizations that are deeply-rooted here and serve our neighbors. From supporting food banks, health clinics and affordable housing to bolstering the world-class cultural institutions that operate in our own backyard, we have invested in dozens of our region’s leading nonprofits.

We focus our regional investments in three key areas:

  • Youth


    To achieve their full potential, children need support beyond the classroom.

  • Food + Housing

    Food + Housing

    We believe hard work should start with a square meal and a home.

  • Community Health

    Community Health

    We invest to strengthen the health of communities in need.
