Children’s Inn at NIH receives donation from Northern Virginia IT company

The Children’s Inn at NIH in Bethesda received a $67,500 donation at the end of last year from Govplace — a Reston, Va., information technology company.


The Children’s Inn at NIH is a nonprofit residence for children with rare, serious illnesses to stay for free if they are participating in research at the National Institutes of Health.

Govplace said in a press release that the money it donated came from the company’s annual golf tournament and that it has supported the children’s hospitality house for more than a decade.

“We could not accomplish what we do and provide this level of support to families and their seriously ill children if it wasn’t for the significant support of generous corporate partners like Govplace,” Children’s Inn CEO Jennie Lucca said in a press release.
