Black Greek Fest Foundation
History too rich to ignore.
The Black Greek Fest Foundation is a 501(c3) nonprofit organization built on multiple rich histories
that we are committed to honoring with our work. These histories affect our present, honor our past and guide our present.
If it doesn’t sound community-driven, it doesn’t sound like Black Greek Fest Foundation.
Our mission is to harness the power of togetherness within Black communities to address systemic racism and power imbalances that disproportionately affect those uplifted by Black Greek Lettered Organizations, both historically and currently.
Our vision is to unify key stakeholders in local Black communities to lead projects addressing socioeconomic issues, inequity, and social injustice, while providing valuable contributions to these crucial topics.
The power of togetherness.
Black Greek Fest Foundation's signature event weekend, Black Greek Festival, stimulates D.C.’s local economy by supporting Black-owned businesses with Black-led concerns and initiatives at the heart of our mission. Through our work, we have supported and highlighted more than 200 Black-owned businesses locally.
Since 2020, our Annual Day of Service has provided more than 750 meals for people experiencing homelessness in D.C., gardens in local parks, general funding for D.C. Public Schools athletics' programs, and more.
