Paint splatter accent Purpose

At the heart of Nationals Philanthropies is a simple purpose with resounding impact –foster a culture of philanthropy in the DMV.

As the official charitable arm of the Washington Nationals, Nationals Philanthropies is a new entity that replaces the Dream Foundation. Building on the success of the foundation’s first decade in Washington, we aspire to an even bolder, more ambitious philanthropic vision that continues to align with the work of the Youth Baseball Academy while building an enhanced and cohesive platform for civic engagement that extends far beyond the Academy walls.

We carry the values of teamwork and perseverance off the field into our commitment to the community, harnessing the power of baseball to deliver monumental opportunities for citizens throughout the region.
