THE STORY:

Last October, I was given the opportunity to become the first Executive Director of the Columbia Heights Initiative. Basically, I have the best job in the world! Each day looks different. When I'm not out meeting with our partner businesses, churches and organizations, I'm likely coordinating volunteers to stuff 4,000 Easter eggs with candy, convincing friends to help me set up a giant Christmas tree, or inflating a 20ft movie screen and hoping the wind doesn't pick up.

No matter what fun craziness is scheduled for this week the core of our work is building relationships. That is my passion and what drives me every day and why I need your help. 

Will you please support me and this organization by:

A ) DONATING $25, $50, $100 to support our mission and keep these events accessible to all

B ) SHARE this fundraiser on your social media

Our Story: 

Over a decade ago, Columbia Heights Day was created to bring unity to the diverse neighborhood of Columbia Heights in celebration of the local history and traditions. Our mission now, as the Columbia Heights Initiative, is to further enrich the quality of life in our community by creating year-round opportunities for residents, business, and organizations to connect in a deep and meaningful way.

This year we've become so much more than a one day festival. We've taken action to build a sustainable organizational infrastructure including tripling our active volunteer corps and building a business and nonprofit network to foster partnerships and help businesses thrive. We've organized community clean-ups, hosted happy hours at our local bars, and most important to our community, we've developed 16 signature events like:

  • Columbia Heights Day (of course!)
  • Movie Nights in the Heights 
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Trick or Treat on 11th Street
  • Fall Fest 
  • Christmas Tree Extravaganza

With all these new and returning events, the Columbia Heights Initiative is sure to offer something for everyone. We take pride in making these experiences accessible to all who live, work, or play in our neighborhood. Thank you for your donation, for sharing this fundraiser on your social media, and for coming to our next event!
