We fight to ensure low-income children in Washington, DC receive a great education and stay healthy so they can learn.
Joseph E. Robert, Jr., launched Fight For Children in 1990 to give back to the community in which he and his employees lived and worked. Since its founding, Fight For Children has raised or leveraged over $450 million for education and healthcare programs serving low-income children in Washington, DC. Fight For Children’s fundraising events and other initiatives have directly raised $100 million. An additional $350 million in federal funding for DC education programs has resulted from the combined efforts of Fight For Children staff and Joe Robert.
