Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Headquarters

Think Big.  Work Hard. Achieve.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is a private, independent foundation established through the will of Jack Kent Cooke.  The Foundation’s mission is “To help young people of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education.”

Located in Lansdowne, Virginia on a wooded seventeen acre site looking out over the nearby Lansdowne golf course, this 22,000 SF facility serves as the foundation’s national headquarters.  The exterior of the building was designed to emulate the surrounding landscape of woodlands, rock outcroppings and native plant life.

The interior maximizes natural light with two-story glass throughout the facility.  Cherry paneling accentuates the woodlands surrounding the building and brings a feel of nature inside.

As a member of the Facilities Subcommittee of the Board of Directors, Greg Dillon worked with foundation executive staff on:

  • Land acquisition
  • Underwriting of tax exempt financing
  • Monitoring of construction
  • Approval of budget increases
