In 1993, GWAC established a charitable arm – GWAC Foundation, Inc. (“the Foundation”). The Foundation received its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service in 1995. That same year, GWAC provided the Foundation with its original endowment, which it has more than tripled in the past five years. The work of the Foundation is performed entirely by volunteers with no paid staff.
Since 1995, the Foundation has provided funding for numerous community outreach and charitable projects. The Foundation also has provided funding to the D.C. Children’s Advocacy Center, which provides services to abused and neglected children; Deborah’s Hayride to Christmas, which provides food to needy families during the Christmas holiday season; and Running to Recovery, which assists recovering substance abusers through training for marathons.
The objective of the Foundation is to empower the African-American community. This objective is accomplished through the following:
- Fostering the education and training of African-American law students.
- Enriching the lives of African-American children.
- Improving the quality of life of the elderly, with a particular emphasis on African Americans.
- Empowering the African-American community, especially the disadvantaged.
