The Trust was established in 1947 by Mary E. Stewart and Helen Stewart Devore in honor of their parents. Trust grants for treatment and prevention are provided to organizations assisting residents of the District of Columbia, particularly in economically disadvantaged communities.
The Stewart Trust distributed over $4.5 million in grants in calendar year 2013. Grantees range from D.C. health clinics and hospitals to community-based organizations providing pediatric and/or cancer treatment for the underprivileged.
