Trustee Foundation Dinner 
The Carnegie Institution for Science
1530 P Street, NW
Washington, DC


The Carnegie Institution for Science is a beautiful historic landmark nestled between Dupont Circle and Logan Circle in the heart of Washington, D.C. Its neoclassical Sixteenth Street façade lends to the grandeur of one of the most prominent thoroughfares in the city.
Completed in 1908 as the administrative building for Andrew Carnegie’s institution for discovery, the facility still houses staff dedicated to furthering the philanthropist’s mission. In addition to the headquarters building, the Institution maintains six research departments located across the country responsible for countless contributions to various scientific fields.

*By invitation only, invitations will be sent by email in late September. Questions about the event? Contact clacey@arda.org
