Grants ranging from $10,000 to $35,000 to Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC nonprofits to aid students with significant financial need reach their full potential through education. Programs should focus on K-12 education, college access and completion, or visual and performing arts education.

Funding can support the establishment of new programs or the enhancement of existing initiatives that support high-potential low-income students. The Foundation is most interested in programs that strive to exceed standards rather than meet them, and aim to promote engagement, enrichment, creativity, talent development, and intellectual curiosity.

Organizations must be located in and serve students in the following geographic areas:

-Virginia: Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, Clarke, or Fauquier counties; the cities of Alexandria, Manassas, Manassas Park, or Falls Church;

-District of Columbia;

-Maryland: Montgomery or Prince George’s counties.

Examples of eligible programs include school-year and summer enrichment opportunities, college access programs, arts education, service learning, and STEM programs, innovative approaches that bridge education and technology, and internship programs.

Funds may also be used for the development of education-related products that will directly benefit students: handbooks, training guides, and other written and digital media.
