Purpose and Activities

The foundation's primary interest is in supporting nonprofit organizations in the District of Columbia whose work is aimed at helping people in or at risk of long-term poverty to become more self-sufficient. Because the foundation is small and seeks to make a real difference to the projects it funds, it is particularly interested in neighborhood-based efforts that provide programs and services to adults, including its funding for vocational education and job counseling. The foundation also has a modest budget for support of the arts.
