Nurturing the Genius Campaign


In October 2014, M.O.M.I.E launched our first ever Nurturing the Genius Campaign for 10-weeks with the goal of raising $40,000 from our supporters. We are excited to annouce that through a combination of individual donations, corporate donations, special events, pledges, and a matching grant, we were able to surpass our goal! Funds generated from the Campaign will go towards the following exciting program and organizational needs:


  • Expanding to two additional school-based sites, at Whittier Education Campus and Lee Montessori PCS, serving an additional 90 children in 2015.

  • Expanding enrollment at our Georgia Avenue Community Based Facility to continue serving in-need school-aged children in DC Wards 1 and 4.

  • Deepen and expand our Youth Ambassadors Initiative to encompass high-quality year-round programming that meets the needs of our middle and high school aged youth. 

  • Support increased costs in managing and maintaining our Georgia Avenue Facility so we can continue our role as a community hub.

  • Increase long-time staff salaries.
