East Washington is a dynamic and growing section of Washington, DC. Bounded by the Anacostia River and home to some of the City’s greenest open space, parks, and extraordinary views of the City, the residents of Wards 7 and 8 know they live in a hidden jewel that is being discovered!
A non-profit organization, the Washington East Foundation was established to advocate and support community efforts in key priority areas—enhancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education, environmental stewardship, and capacity building. Our website is your opportunity to learn more about the people and places in East of the River. Join in being a part of Washington East Foundation’s work to build and strengthen our neighborhoods and communities east of the Anacostia River!
