Renovate the Dupont Circle Resource Center

The Dupont Circle Resource Center is community facility used by a wide variety of groups including:  ANC2B, Dupont Circle Main Streets, Dupont Circle Citizens Association, Dupont Conservancy, Dupont Underground, Dupont Festival, Fresh Farm Market, MPD, National Park Service, and the NPS Park Police.  Because it is used day and night - seven days a week, the facility has really taken a beating over the last 16 years!  (Yes, the Resource Center reopened in March of 2001.) Please donate today using the link below.

It holds membership meetings 9 times each year, which are open to the public, runs the Dupont Circle House Tour, resolves neighborhood issues through its committees, donates to local causes, and incubates innovative projects.
