At the center of Mark’s philanthropic activity is his foundation. Along with his wife, Brenda, Mark established the Mark and Brenda Moore and Family Foundation in 2010. The foundation supports advances in healthcare, education, the arts and Christian Evangelism. The foundation has contributed to a wide variety of causes including the Mount Vernon Hospital’s expansion program, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture to be opened in 2016, the Posse Foundation, the Hopkins House Early Childhood Learning Center, the Community Coalition for Haiti and the John Leland Center for Theological Studies.

Mark and Brenda believe exposure to the arts is an essential part of a balanced life and have strongly supported the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York, the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC, and other cultural institutions.

At the heart of Mark’s life is his spiritual passion. Mark recently traveled to the Holy Land to renew his wedding vows with his wife and for the two of them to be baptized in the River Jordan. Mark said of the experience, “There is nothing as affirming to your Christian faith as to actually walk in the steps that Christ did and to feel his presence firsthand where his spirit manifested itself on earth. Everyone should enjoy this pilgrimage at some point in their life!”
