What is the Children's Charities Foundation?

Former US Ambassador, Peter Teeley, and a group of Washington-area business and professional leaders founded the Children’s Charities Foundation in 1994. There is an acute need to raise money for disadvantaged and at-risk children and youth of the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Children’s Charities Foundation has distributed nearly $9 million to charities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area including the District of Columbia; Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland; Fairfax and Arlington Counties in Virginia; and the City of Alexandria.

The Children’s Charities Foundation funds nonprofit organizations that support these disadvantaged and at-risk children by strengthening their health and welfare, supporting strong and cohesive families, and assisting educational and recreational programs.

The Children’s Charities Foundation is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization chartered and headquartered in the District of Columbia.
