Make Space for Opportunity


Our Mission

The Cassandra S. Pinkney Foundation exists to support Eagle Academy Public Charter School and make possible its commitment to providing a high-quality education to every child. We do this by investing in STEAM, technology, and SPED; supporting efforts to care for the “whole child”; giving back to the community; and exposing Eagle students to the possibilities of their future. Our goal is to help expand the horizons of Eagle students by giving them access to opportunities normally outside of their reach.

"We want to give our students a great foundation, so no matter where they go, they are able to make it. Because they have everything they need in order to move forward."

— Cassandra S. Pinkney


Cassandra's Legacy

Cassandra S. Pinkney spent her life fighting for the children of DC. She remained firm in her belief that every child - regardless of background - should have access to a high-quality education. And she made it her life's work to fulfill that vision. 

Her passion for providing high-quality programs to low-income students is reflected in Eagle Academy, and through the Cassandra S. Pinkney Foundation, it is our hope to continue her life's work for years to come. The Pinkney Foundation will invest in resources and opportunities for students that Eagle Academy is unable to fund.

With your support, we can remove the physical, mental, and environmental barriers that have prevented generations of underprivileged children from reaching their dreams. Eagle Academy students are capable of changing the world. Your generosity helps them get started.
