OUR INVESTMENTS

During our 2020/2021 fiscal year, we continued to support partners through the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic while building toward sustainable system change that will enable all children to thrive. We invested in the following areas: Early Learning and School Mental Health (which together form our D.C. Wards 7 and 8 Initiative), Seventh-day Adventist Initiative, Food Security Initiative and the Bainum Foundation Farm. Through our Family Philanthropy Initiative, we also supported the personal philanthropic efforts of four generations of the Bainum family.
