A Year End Note

December 2020

As the Administrator and Members of the Advisory Board of The Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation -- and as friends and admirers of Stone and of Holt -- we wanted to say thank you for your ongoing support over these last 11 years and to ask that you remember The Foundation in your year-end charitable giving. 

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the Foundation has continued to support organizations that have carried on their good work, often having to transform to a virtual format.  Even though we are not able to gather in person while so many are quarantining at home, you have donated from near and far, sent kind and encouraging notes, participated remotely in Foundation events and otherwise embodied Do Good, Have Fun in your own way and on your own time in honor of Holt and of Stone. 

At a time when we are feeling isolated and goodness can seem scarce, The Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation remains unwavering in its pursuit of the charitable work Stone and Holt believed in and worked for. Please see the work of The Foundation to understand more fully the scope of its mission.

Through these last 11 years, The Foundation has awarded grants totaling over $600,000 to multiple organizations working to benefit those most in need. This is a testament to Holt and to Stone, who were -- and continue to be -- an inspiration for others to further the work they engaged in during their all too brief lives. 

Your generous help will ensure that The Foundation can continue to fund these organizations for many years to come.  And it will enable The Foundation to respond to more people in need -- as we did this year -- sending relief to victims of the Northwest wildfires and hurricane ravaged communities in Louisiana and Central America through the American Red Cross, aiding the Navajo Nation’s efforts to control terrific surges in Covid-19 cases through Partners In Health, and providing support to the Capital Area Food Bank as it dispenses much needed food to so many Washington, D.C. area residents. 

The Foundation is a component fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation. All contributions are tax deductible. When you make a donation to The Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation, 98.9 percent goes straight to the good causes we support. The other 1.1 percent goes to the Community Foundation, which handles the accounting and paperwork. 

Thank you again and wishing you all good health as we embark on a new year.
