Founded in 2003, The Madison of Washington, DC is a professional, civic, and social organization of 100 young women in the greater DC area, representing a broad range of careers. Our members seek to improve their communities and enhance their lives through volunteerism.

The Madison fundraises for a chosen charity each calendar year through a series of social events such as happy hours, brunches, Madison Night Out events, and our annual holiday party, Madison & Mistletoe, among many others. Our 2017 charity is Dreams for Kids DC.

The organization is named in honor of Dolley Madison, who ranks among the most significant and beloved first ladies in American history, and whose lasting legacy exemplifies the gracious character, civic pride, and spirit of service that The Madison seeks to foster.
