About Us

Our Mission

We are dedicated to uplifting communities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area through strong, innovative partnerships.

Our Approach

We are dedicated to supporting nonprofit organizations primarily located in the Washington, D.C. metro area. This includes a focus on helping youth secure a promising future, especially through early childhood education, mentoring and youth leadership programs. Equally important are organizations that help offer relief from hunger and homelessness; provide prospects for people to lead healthy lives; and create gainful employment opportunities for vulnerable youth and adults.

The Giving Pledge

The Giving Pledge is a commitment by individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. On November 25, 2013, Richard and Nancy Marriott made this pledge reaffirming their philanthropic beliefs.
