"Your Year-End Donation Will be Matched Up to $50K!"

The Pearl Coalition (TPC) has began to build the replica of the Pearl schooner with youth and volunteers, from the DC area, thanks to supporters just like you!  Our continuing goal is to engage 1000+ volunteers over the course of the next two years to facilitate the building, event planning, communications, and the development of small business enterprise opportunities.  Your support directly supports this fun and educational experience that will continue to enrich the lives of all that participate for generations to come!  Once completed, The Pearl will be a fully operational sailing vessel and destination along the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers in our Nation's Capitol.


Make a small donation of $10, $25, $100 or more to help us reach our year–end fund raising goal.  Thanks to the Horning Family Foundation, Pepco, Strauss Foundation, and the Smith Family, Donations up to $50,000 will be matched!  Volunteer to connect your children’s schools, community organization, church group or business to help build the “Spirit of he Pearl” schooner.

Our new strategic partnership with The Richardson Museum at Cambridge, MD, has a team with over 100 years of collective experience in building and managing Schooners all over the East Coast.
