Cathedral Close Cares is a partnership among the seven neighboring institutions—Washington National Cathedral, St. Albans School, National Cathedral School, Beauvoir, the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation and St. Alban’s Parish—to foster discussion and promote action concerning service, justice and unity.

Join in as we partner with our Cathedral Close neighbors to bring students and staff together with our worshipping community to support those most in need.

Season of Giving 2020

Season of Giving Update

Thank you to all who supported our Season of Giving outreach this holiday season! Friends, neighbors, staff, and students from across the Close community came together to support families throughout the DC area.

Due to the hardships of the ongoing pandemic, it was more vital than ever to support our neighbors this holiday season. Together, the seven close institutions raised over $100,000. We supported over 1,600 families this Thanksgiving and provided gift cards to purchase gifts for over 1,000 children for Christmas.

We are grateful to work and share with local partners: Covenant Baptist/UCC, Friendship Place, Bishop Walker School for Boys, Washington School for Girls, New Life Ministries, Excel Academy, We are Family Annual Blue and White Thanksgiving, the Latino Student Fund, Sasha Bruce, the Wanda Alston Foundation, the Women’s Collective, Bright Beginnings Early Childhood Learning Center, Community of Hope, and the Cathedral Scholars Program.
