Sponsorship Opportunities

Make it possible! Since 2001, A Wider Circle has served more than 170,000 children and adults. Yet we know that the real work lies ahead. We remain committed to ending poverty for individuals and families, and with your commitment and support, we can – and will – succeed in this mission.


The Race to End Poverty: April 23, 2017 
Join A Wider Circle at Meadowbrook Park in Chevy Chase, Maryland for The Race to End Poverty! Sign up as an individual, with your family, team, company, or any group to run or walk the 5k or 1 mile. And there is a great Tot-Trot for the little ones. Any age, fast or not-so fast, everyone is welcome! The race is a great chance for the community to come together to help support those we serve.

Purchased in May 2015, our headquarters (where we had previously leased space) will soon be an even greater model of community service. More than 50,000 people are expected to serve or be served here each year. Sponsorships will be recognized through the naming of rooms and centers within the building or on our donor wall. Above is the architect’s rendering of the exterior of the renovated headquarters. Naming levels range from $1,000 (brick) – $750,000 (one of our two centers).
