About Washington DC

Bordered by Maryland to the east and the Potomac River to the west, Washington DC has been the center of American politics since it was declared the capital in 1791. The city, which is home to the iconic Capitol building, has more national monuments, museums and historic sites than any other city in the United States – it’s also one of the most-visited travel destinations, with more than 20 million visitors annually.

Washington DC is culturally and ethnically diverse, with more than 10 percent of its residents being born in another country. You’ll find many opportunities to sample authentic cuisine and celebrate other cultures with citywide festivals and events held throughout the year. Because of its proximity to major New England population centers like New York and Philadelphia, there’s no shortage of upscale shopping centers, performing arts venues, art museums and exciting day or weekend adventure travels.

As the seat of American politics – and, by extension, fundraising – you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect charity event venue in Washington DC. Historic buildings, boardrooms, museums, theaters and other sites offer not only beautiful views of the Potomac River and numerous national monuments, but also access to many restaurants and local businesses that can help you make the evening a success.

Charity Event Options in Washington DC

Whether it’s a bake sale to fund a local school project or a large-scale gala focused on a national or international relief organization, you’ll likely want to enlist the help of local businesses to provide quality services for you and your guests.

  • Catering
    Asking guests to purchase tickets to a hosted dinner or other meal, and then offering up the proceeds to charity, is a great fundraising option. There are many restaurants and catering companies serving up any type of meal you can imagine, from an all-you-can-eat barbecue feast to a fresh spread of salads and sandwiches or elegant haute cuisine. Many companies also provide beverage services if your venue doesn’t have its own bar, and most special dietary needs can be accommodated.

  • Interior Design
    Transforming an empty or simple space into an elegant party venue can make a big difference when it comes to the look and feel of your event. A talented interior or event designer can incorporate a variety of design elements, such a florals, fabric, staging and props, to fit your theme. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to developing a theme, they can help you there, too.

  • Marketing Agencies
    Once you’ve selected a venue, developed a design concept and reached out to any outside vendors, you’ll need to think about your guests – specifically, how to attract them. One of Washington DC’s marketing agencies can help you get the word out about your charity event via both traditional and social/digital marketing channels. Some of them can also help with guest management and assist you in creating signage, stationery and promotional items with your event brand.
