The Joyce and Thomas Moorehead Foundation

The Joyce and Thomas Moorehead Foundation The Joyce and Thomas Moorehead Foundation has made education and the investment in student scholars the primary focus of its philanthropic giving.

Founded in 2004 by Joyce and Thomas Moorehead, (graduates of Bethune-Cookman University and Grambling State University), The Joyce and Thomas Moorehead Foundation (JTMF) has provided more than $400,000 in charitable assistance to students, working families and non-profit organizations in Northern Virginia. The JTMF has made education and the investment in student scholars the primary focus of its philanthropic giving. Through annual scholarship awards to high school students and emergency grants to college upperclassmen, the Foundation contributes greatly to the diversification and enrichment of today’s global workforce. The Foundation strongly believes their philanthropic service is more than a source of college funding, but an active program that includes networking, mentoring, and community service. Joyce, an attorney and Thomas Moorehead, a 26 year veteran of the automotive industry, own BMW of Sterling, the largest African American owned BMW franchise in the nation, MINI of Sterling and Rolls Royce Motor Cars Sterliing. They also own several hotel properties located throughout the nation. Thomas, as owner of BMW of Sterling and MINI of Sterling, was recognized by Black Enterprise magazine as its 2007 Automobile Dealer of the Year. Thomas is currently the Chairman of the Board of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers (NAMAD), which works to improve opportunities for all minority automobile dealers in the industry. Joyce is a member of the board of trustees of Bethune Cookman University. They are significant annual contributors to at least three historically black institutions of higher learning: Howard University, Grambling State University, Bethune Cookman University and several other civic and charitable organizations. Their commitment to education led them to endow scholarships through the Kappa Scholarship Endowment Fund and to fund the Moorehead Learning Center at the headquarters of a local chapter of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
