About The PRT Reach Foundation and The Presidents' RoundTable

The Presidents' RoundTable (PRT), founded in 1983 for the primary purpose of accelerating Black business growth in our region, is comprised of 19 business member organizations providing services throughout Washington, DC, Maryland and global regions. PRT organizations provide services ranging from construction, IT, green energy, media communications and retail. For more than 30 years, the members of the PRT have excelled in actualizing this vision set by the four founding members – Ray Haysbert, Dorothy Brunson, Osborne Payne and Terry Addison. Through the use of members' collective knowledge, relationships and experience, the PRT works to strengthen the capacity and ensure equal access to opportunities.

The PRT Reach Foundation is a not-for-profit organization in Maryland that works in close collaboration with The Presidents' RoundTable. Its primary mission is to promote social welfare and combat community deterioration by improving the economic conditions for small and minority businesses and for the community at large. One way that PRT Reach seeks to achieve this goal is through the use of professional development activities, outreach programs and intellectual works that are not readily accessible through other means (community and business advocacy groups, government agencies, etc.).
