Two decades of thoughtful investment by the Summit Fund have made a fishable, swimmable Anacostia River a question of when, not if. But what remains to be done, and what opportunities await riverfront neighborhoods, especially east of the river?

Join your fellow grantmakers for a look at the challenges and opportunities of a cleaner Anacostia River. Whether you are interested in the environmental health of the watershed or the economic health of the communities along the riverbank, come share your thoughts on how philanthropy can continue to catalyze the transformation of the Anacostia.
