ABOUT THE EIGS
Heather and Jason Eig have been living in the DC metropolitan area for nearly five decades. They grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, where they currently reside with their three children and two dogs. The Eigs have always been actively involved in the music and arts culture of Washington, DC.
Jason attended Georgetown University and Georgetown University Law Center and is a Real Estate and Finance Partner at Blank Rome LLP in its Washington, D.C. office. Heather attended the University of Maryland for both undergraduate and graduate schools and is a School Counselor in Montgomery County Public Schools.
The Eigs have a passion for community outreach and social action. They regularly volunteer with local organizations and support the growth of the arts, dance, and music. They are committed to volunteer work, including active involvement with Special Olympics Montgomery County, HeadCount, Comfort Cases, KindWorks, and the Live Music Challenge. Heather's and Jason's children took their passion for community service to the next level. Brendan, Zachary, and Madeline each completed dozens of charitable projects over the past several years as they each prepared for their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and continue to make time to volunteer. Their collective effort inspired their parents to create this foundation and tie together their family’s love of music and the arts with their efforts to give back to the community.
Heather and Jason founded Eigs of the World Foundation to provide opportunities and financial assistance to children in need, in hopes of sharing their family’s passion for music and the arts. Donations raised will benefit other 501(c)(3) charitable organizations who look to provide similar opportunities and financial assistance to children in need.
