Forty UNDER 40 Prince George’s identifies the County’s top talent and provides a ready pipeline for non-profit board service.



The PGCSIF ‘2 to 6 Initiative’ seeks to create a more direct qualitative link between public school standards and out-of-school time, through after school enrichment (2 PM to 6 PM) for improved educational outcomes.



We advocate for non-profit board pipeline development, increased philanthropy in Prince George’s County, employment and contracting residency preferences, after school enrichment, efficient use of public assets.



PGCSIF maintains a keen interest in and advocates on behalf of business models that support triple bottom-line efforts – people, planet, and profit.
