You are invited to the Annual Meeting of Friends of Southwest DC, which will be held on Thursday, March 20th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at St. Augustine’s Church, Maine Ave and 6th St SW. We hope that this centralized and accessible location will provide greater opportunity for all interested Southwesters to participate.

The Friends of Southwest DC is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1998. The organization provides grants for community development, educational, and charitable purposes in the near Southwest. In 2013, seven grants were awarded to ten organizations that serve primarily youth and families. Please come to hear directly from the people involved. At the meeting, representatives from those organizations will elaborate on how the grants were used, including participants’ reactions.

This annual meeting is an opportunity for donors to FOS, as well as residents of the Southwest community, to hear what FOS has accomplished during the year as well as to meet the representatives of other nonprofit organizations in Southwest. The activities of FOS are supported by tax-deductible donations from local residents. Tax-exempt organizations in the Southwest DC area may apply for funding at any time.

Contact Coralie Farlee, President, at 389 O St SW, WDC 20024, by phone at 202-554-4407, or by email at FriendsSWDC@yahoo.com. Donations may be made to this address or via credit card through Razoo.com (indicate “Friends of Southwest DC” in upper right window). Please contact Coralie Farlee at the above number or e-mail with questions.
