Philanthropic 50: Mark and Brenda Moore

by Editorial

Alexandria, Va. entrepreneur Mark Moore attributed his recovery from two strokes in 2007 to divine intervention. He wrote movingly about his new spirituality in his book, “Stroke of Faith.” On a more practical level, the Moores established the Mark and Brenda Moore and Family Foundation in 2010 to support advances in healthcare, education, the arts and Christian Evangelism. By mid-2017, it had given $7.5 million to different causes. The hospital in Alexandria where Mark was treated was not forgotten and Inova Mount Vernon Hospital now has a new state-of-the-art patient tower. The Moores also chaired two galas that raised $4 million for the hospital. The couple are founding donors of the National Museum of African History and Culture and support the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater in New York and the John Leland Center for Theological Studies in Arlington, Va.
