Susan G. Komen-For the Cure
Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested nearly $1.5 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
Victory Youth Centers, Inc. (VYC)
Victory Youth Centers, Inc. (“VYC”) is a non-profit organization committed to managing and building multi-use recreational facilities for children in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area, founded in 1998, by several local Washington area businessmen. Each project is a joint effort between both public and private funds. Today VYC is a non-profit organization under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Washington with 2 youth centers. Recognizing that each area has different demographics and needs, VYC decided to locate their centers in diverse communities. The Katie Fitzgerald Recreation Center, located in Darnestown, MD., opened in 2002. The Mary Virginia Merrick Center, located at 4275 4th Street, SE, in Washington, D.C., opened in 2008.
Recognizing a desperate need for a quality community center, VYC strategically located, in May of 2008, a recreational center in Ward 8 of Washington, DC. The dream became a reality with the Mary Virginia Merrick Recreational Center in the most underserved area in Anacostia, Southeast Washington, DC. The Center is named after the founder of the Christ Child Society and Washingtonian, Mary Virginia Merrick, who was born to a prominent Washington family and devoted her life to serving the poor families of our city. VYC located this facility to make the most impact on the youth and families in this area. Partnering with local agencies, community leaders and businesses, VYC seeks out programs that would best meet the needs of the area youth. Afterschool mentoring and activities, open gym nights, stage performances, computer lab classes, athletic practices and tournaments to support and engage the youth of the neighborhood are some of the activities offered at this center in Anacostia. Victory Youth Centers, Inc. strives to provide excellence in high quality facilities, staffing and programming at both of its centers.
St. Judes Children's Research Hospital
St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
When late entertainer Danny Thomas opened the doors to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 1962, he was not just changing the lives of children who would walk through its doors—he was changing lives across the world. When St. Jude completed its $1 billion, five-year expansion in 2005, it bolstered the hospital's efforts to find cures for the catastrophic diseases of childhood. The growth more than doubled the size of the hospital’s original campus. The expansion included the Children's GMP, LLC—the nation's only pediatric research center on-site facility for production of highly specialized treatments and vaccines—an expanded Department of Immunology and more. Now with the addition of the Chili’s Care Center, a larger, rejuvenated Kay Kafe cafeteria for employees and patients, and renovations to the medicine room and rehabilitation areas, the hospital is more poised than ever to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Washinton Project for the Arts (WPA)
Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) is an independent, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization whose mission is to serve as a Catalyst for contemporary art. WPA supports artists at all stages of their careers and promotes contemporary art by presenting exhibitions,issues, and ideas that stimulate public dialogue on art and culture.
Originally established in 1975, WPA operated out of various locations in Washington, DC until its merger with the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 1996, when the organization was reconstituted as the Washington Project for the Arts Corcoran. While based at the Corcoran, the WPAC initiated and supported a broad range of exhibitions and projects both at the museum and at off-site locations in Washington, DC.
In 2008, WPA returned to full autonomy and formally separated from the Corcoran. From its current Dupont Circle location, Washington Project for the Arts continues to provide opportunities for local artists to gain exposure for their work, and fosters connections between artists, curators, arts patrons, and the general public.
