Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Community Celebration

TIS Foundation partners with Prince George’s County to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. on his birthday by bringing the community together with key leaders to reflect on our progress and distribute food and other items to families in need.

Annual Back-To-School Drive

A child’s ability to and interest in learning should not be hindered by their economic status. TIS Foundation supports an Annual Back-to-School Drive each year to help remove barriers to academic achievement for youth in low-wealth communities. Our donations of educational supplies and backpacks help to ensure students have the tools to be successful in school.

Each year, TIS Foundation provides a warm Thanksgiving meal and fresh turkeys to hundreds of low-income households in Washington, DC. During the event, TIS Foundation gathers, District public officials, the faith community and local leaders to address critical issues affecting their neighborhoods and families.

Annual "TIS The Season" Toy Drive & Giveaway

Each December TIS Foundation collects and distributes over 500 toys and gifts for children and youth in high-poverty communities in Washington, DC at its festive holiday event. Our goal is to support parents by helping to ensure these youth can experience the holiday season with joy. Our past partner communities include the Carver Terrace neighborhood in Ward 5 and Congress Heights neighborhood in Ward 8.

In June 2019, TIS Foundation celebrated 25 years of community assistance at our 25th Anniversary Gala. This event honored the brilliance, fortitude, and power of female leaders, and celebrated a quarter of a century in benefiting our community through food drives, workforce development programs, scholarship programs, and more!

Thank you to our community partners for their generous support!
