As one of our founding chapters, the Washington, D.C chapter has had a long history of helping Betterment support individuals and organizations. In fact, D.C. played host to Betterment’s first event, a golf tournament in 2000.
Since then, D.C.’s annual Betterment Golf Tournament has become a tradition for our members, who come from across the country to join in the weekend festivities and to raise money for a worthy cause.
The D.C. chapter also plays host to various other events and happy hours throughout the year, as Betterment works to unite professionals of all ages and levels in our philanthropic mission. Some of our more recent get-togethers have taken place in popular locations throughout the city, including: The Capital Grill, The Big Hunt, Old Ebbitt Grill, The Cajun Experience, Acadiana, and the W Hotel Roof. We have partnered with Neiman Marcus for a night of fashion and fun; taken our supporters out to the DC Wax Museum where we partied with some serious celebrities; and helped our members "roll the dice" for a good cause at the Betterment National Press Club casino nights.
Since its founding, Betterment’s D.C chapter has helped many individuals and organizations, both locally and on a national scale. Stay tuned for updates on upcoming events in the DC Metro Area!
