Wig Capitol Foundation (WCF)
The Wig Capitol Foundation (WCF) was established to provide new and or refurbished wigs to low-income women and veterans who are coping with hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, and other medical illnesses.
We also provide complementary beautification workshops to cancer survivors, low-income women, and veterans to equipped them with the tools they need to prepare them for the employment process. Our mission is to empower women and families with our workshops, support the cancer survivors through their various treatments, and educate the families about the numerous harsh effects of cancer.

We have donated wigs to the largest cancer organizations in the United States such as the American Cancer Society, African Women’s Cancer Awareness Association and Howard University Hospital Cancer Ward in the efforts to fight against all forms of cancer.
We always promote and host advocacy programs, fundraisers, and seminars throughout the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area.
