Client Spotlight: The Cherry Fund

Since their incorporation in 1996, the Cherry Fund has provided more than $1.3 MILLION in support and grants, of which 97% comes directly from individual ticket sales. Financial support also includes contributions and sponsorships by National and DC Area Businesses. Grants given may be used for any purpose that contributes to an organization’s programming or furthers its mission, so long as such mission conforms with the values of the Cherry Fund. Preference will be given to HIV/AIDS, Mental Health, and youth-serving organizations.
