Community Champions

The Community Champions program created by the Whitlow Foundation recognizes leaders who have made an impact on the lives on communities of color in the DMV for years. Some of these leaders are unsung, yet they continue to do the work to encourage others to live in and on purpose, to push themselves beyond their limited and limiting beliefs, and to explore their creativity.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


On behalf of The Whitlow Foundation and the people of the community, we would like to say “Thank You”! Thank you so much for your blind service and commitment to the community during Covid-19 2020. You contributed to the distribution of over 20,000 meals in Wards 6, 7, and 8.

Capital Hill Jazz Foundation


Our mission is to serve the Washington D.C. jazz community by providing a weekly jam session, an annual jazz festival, and arts advocacy on behalf of D.C. jazz musicians.



Our vision is to financially assist Washington D.C. based jazz musicians, venues, and jazz education programs.


The Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation’s mission would be fulfilled with three main components, two of which are already in operation. The three main components are the Capitol Hill Jazz Jam, the Capitol Hill Jazz Festival, and the D.C. Jazz Lobby.
