A. James Clark never forgot that his business successes began with an engineering scholarship. That is why the Clark family has long supported extending engineering education to talented students from underrepresented backgrounds, including first-generation college students.

Mr. Clark’s belief in the power of hard work enabled him to grow a local construction company into a national success. And it guides the philanthropic giving the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation continues in his name today — from scholarships for engineering students to better schools for D.C.’s children to veteran reintegration programs and support of the D.C. community.
