The Madison of Washington DC
Each year, the Madison focuses its fundraising efforts to benefit one local charity, which is chosen by vote at the annual all-member meeting. Designated charities in previous years have included: No Greater Sacrifice (2011-2012), StreetWise Partners DC (2010), Community Lodgings (2009), Susan G. Komen for the Cure (2008), and My Sister's Place (2007).
Raising Money For Charity
The Madison has raised over $100,000 for local charities since its inception in 2004. The Madison offers its members the opportunity to connect personal and professional goals, and build new, rewarding relationships through community service.
Members of the Madison are college-educated young professionals who come from all over the nation and excel in a variety of fields—from politics to business, medicine to finance, education to law. Members represent a range of Washington-area employers, including: the White House, Congress, the State Department and other federal agencies, media networks, Fortune-500 companies, and internationally recognized hospitals and law firms.
Membership is offered once a year at the invitation of the Madison Board.
The organization is named in honor of Dolley Madison, who ranks among the most significant and beloved first ladies in American history, and whose lasting legacy exemplifies the gracious character, civic pride, and spirit of service that the Madison seeks to foster.
