50 Years of Impact

50th anniversary gala

For 50 years, the Shriver Center has been working to ensure justice, every day, for everyone. Working together, we’ve had hundreds of victories, large and small.

We are grateful to our supporters, who joined us in celebrating the Shriver Center’s 50th anniversary in 2017. More than 800 advocates, clients, partners, and supporters gathered at our annual gala in October to celebrate the legacy of Sargent Shriver and the hundreds of victories, large and small, that the Shriver Center has won on behalf of low-income clients over the last 50 years.

In December, The Shriver Summit: The Future of Justice brought over 200 advocates together to explore threats to important anti-poverty policies at the federal level and advocacy strategies to ensure opportunity for workers, families, and communities.

The year culminated with the successful completion of The Shriver Challenge: A Campaign for Justice, Equity, and Opportunity, a $3 million fundraising campaign launched by a $1 million lead gift from the five children of Sargent and Eunice Shriver. Funds raised through the Shriver Challenge will position the Shriver Center for long-term growth and stability.

Poverty is an issue that affects us all. Join us as we carry forward Sargent Shriver’s legacy and ensure justice, every day, for everyone. Support our work today.
