CharityWorks is a group of Washington, D.C.'s most prominent local community
entrepreneurs who provide fund raising expertise to much needed, but poorly
supported public service and charity organizations.
CharityWorks has no paid staff or resources. Each year, they select a highly
prized, but often little recognized organization that is providing the safety
net for at-risk children and families.
In 2003, CharityWorks is partnering with The Fishing School, a family
and child support center operating in two of the most crime-ridden neighborhoods
in the District of Columbia.
The Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation's grant will be used by The Fishing
School to give 120 children in Washington, D.C. an opportunity to break
free from the cycle of poverty, drug abuse and neglect that surrounds them.
