Concert For Life
Over the past 20 years Foundry has worked with partners to put on the Concert for Life in an effort to raise funds to benefit organizations that help people living with HIV/AIDS. Since 1993 more than $1,000,000 has been sent to organizations within Washington, DC and internationally to South Africa. We celebrate this culminating mark of Concert for Life. While we will not have Concert for Life in its present form, we want to connect donors to organizations working with the HIV/AIDS communities. Please see the list below to find out about the beneficiary organizations. We pray the generosity we have seen in the last 20 years will continue to benefit those who need it most. Special thanks to all the volunteers and donors for your tremendous support.

Little Angels, based in the Western Cape province of South Africa, is involved with various

terminally ill babies, and allows them to die with dignity and love, in a caring family environment.

Miriam’s House, designed to end the cycle of homelessness, serves homeless single women or mothers and their children. Not a shelter, Miriam’s House seeks to be preventative in nature for the children and rehabilitative for the adults. It is hoped that by offering a comprehensive program, individuals may be empowered to live independently.
Whitman-Walker was one of the first responders to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in DC in the early 1980s. Since then, we've developed a deep experience in providing high quality care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Quality of Life Retreats:
We offer a unique and holistic, participant-centered approach to educating, supporting and empowering people living with HIV. Our four-day retreats offer participants important wisdom for living and coping with their illness and related challenges, as well as opportunities to connect socially and emotionally with others in similar situations. This is where participants can find renewal and relationships, while learning actions and attitudes that can be effective for long-term survival.
