Andrea Rodgers Courage for Kids

Our Founder and CEO, Andrea Rodgers at Bright Beginnings for Pre-K Graduation in August 2014.

Your philanthropic support is critical to meeting our mission. The generous support of donors like you ensures we are able to give every preschool graduate from Bright Beginnings, House of Ruth’s Playspace and CentroNia the supplies they will need for Kindergarten.

Your donations also fuel our other initiatives such as supplying Dr. Bear’s Closet at Children’s Hospital with toys and books which are given to kids fighting for their lives, supporting homeless children at United Communities Against Poverty’s Shepherd’s Cove facility in Prince George’s County, and improving the physical condition of Washington, DC public schools through our partnership with Hands on DC. By making a financial contribution, you can help Courage For Kids in its mission to create, find and support programs for at-risk children that directly improve the health and well being of those children in the Mid-Atlantic region.
