ABOUT WASHINGTON INFORMER CHARITIES
The Washington Informer was founded by the late Dr. Calvin W. Rolark, Sr. and his wife, Wilhelmina J. Rolark, Esq., in 1964. We honor them for their dedication to serving the residents of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. Dr. Rolark’s desire was to publish and promote positive news and events that would enrich and educate the community and to help individuals to prosper and help one another.
Washington Informer Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps children and adults reach their fullest potential through providing opportunities to improve and strengthen their literacy skills. We establish and support programs that improve reading ability, and expand overall access to learning.
Strengthening education, knowledge and the skills of our youth, lead to real opportunities for our children and better outcomes for all of our citizens and the world we live in. Among other initiatives, Washington Informer Charities provides and promotes services that uplift, encourage, and motivate our youth in a positive manner.
