WSG Receives Grant from the Children's Charities Foundation

The Washington School for Girls joins over 200 Washington DC area charities since 1994 to receive funding from the Children’s Charities Foundation (CCF). Founded by Peter Teeley, former US Ambassador, and a group of Washington-area business and professional leaders, CCF has distributed nearly $9 million to support area children by strengthening their health and welfare, supporting strong and cohesive families, and assisting educational and recreational programs. The Children’s Charities Foundation raises most of its funds from the BB&T Classic, an annual basketball tournament held in early December featuring college and university teams; the BasketBALL, its annual gala dinner held before the tournament; and a Golf Tournament held each spring. BB&T is CCF’s corporate partner in fundraising. Visit www.ccfdc.org for more information.

The Washington School for Girls will use its CCF funding to support all areas of its mission, from teacher salaries and supplies to the graduate support program. We are grateful to CCF for believing in our mission as we work to serve children, youth and families in Washington, DC metropolitan area.
