“For 40 years, The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region – the region’s largest funder of nonprofits – has helped make Greater Washington a more stable, healthy, and vibrant place to live for all who call it home. On March 17, we are celebrating this history with a one-of-a-kind fundraising event at The Mead Center for American Theatre, home of Arena Stage. Performers include:

• Grammy-nominated musician Christylez Bacon
• A line-up of nationally known spoken word artists and poets: Regie Cabico, Patrick Washington, G. Yamazawa, Safia Elhillo, Silvana Straw, Gowri K., Drew Law, and 2DEEP
• Maureen Andary of the award-winning duo The Sweater Set
• Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company
• Joe’s Movement Emporium
• Levine Music
• Adventure Theatre MTC
• N Street Village

Admission includes passed hors d’oeuvres and delicious food stations (including award-winning BBQ, plenty of vegetarian options, and corned beef and Guinness for St. Patrick’s Day) and an open bar with spirits, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. Attendees are invited to network, eat, and enjoy performances across the Mead Center complex in a festival-style atmosphere. The event is open to the public. For the first time, The Community Foundation is offering a special $90 “Emerging Philanthropist” ticket for young professionals, students, and employees of nonprofits as well as their guests. Tickets at www.cfncr40th.org

Proceeds from the 40th Anniversary Celebration will benefit The Community Foundation’s Fund for Greater Washington, which supports community investment to make the region a place where equity, access, and opportunity are available to all. The Foundation pursues this goal by investing in effective safety net, education, and workforce development programs to help low-income families and individuals gain the knowledge, skills, and security they need to be economically stable and engaged in community life.
