A Year End Note
As the Administrator and Members of the Advisory Board of The Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation, we wanted to write this year's December message to thank you for your continuing support and to ask that you remember the Foundation in your year-end charitable giving.
During the last eight years the Foundation has awarded grants totaling over $400,000 to multiple organizations working to benefit those most in need. This is a testament to Stone and to Holt, who were -- and continue to be -- an inspiration for others to further the work they engaged in during their all too brief lives. Please see more about the work of The Foundation.
During 2017 the Foundation’s Endowment has continued to grow, and it is the hope, with your generous support, that the Foundation will continue to fund -- and increase giving to -- these organizations for many years to come. This continued support will also enable us to respond to more disaster relief efforts -- as we were able to do this year in Texas, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands -- that would have unquestionably engaged Holt and Stone.
Our Foundation is a component fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation. All contributions are tax deductible. When you make a donation to The Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation, 98.9 percent goes straight to the good causes we support. The other 1.1 percent goes to the Community Foundation, which handles the accounting and paperwork.
Please remember We Kare-eoke *Washington* on Thursday, December 21 from 6:00 PM to midnight at Flanagan’s Harp & Fiddle in Bethesda, Maryland. Flanagan’s is located at 4844 Cordell Avenue. The night will support the Foundation -- and in turn, all of the organizations that the Foundation benefits.
