Mission


The David Gordon Louis Daniel Foundation is named in memory of David Gordon Louis Daniel, who was killed in a vehicular accident on July 31, 2004. David Gordon, a Spring Hill Elementary School student in McLean, Virginia, was almost eight at the time of his death. David was a very special child who had remarkable intellectual ability and also great compassion, concern for others, and an overriding love of learning. The mission of the Foundation grows out of the qualities that made David so extraordinary:


To create innovative programs that engender in children a lifelong love of learning, a desire to help others and give back to their communities, and the inspiration and confidence to fulfill their potential in school and beyond.

On August 19, 2015, the results of a DGLD supported research project were published in  Pediatric Research, a journal of the prestigious Nature Publishing Group. The article, "Novel data-mining approach identifies biomarkers for diagnosis of Kawasaki disease,” describes a breakthrough in the development of laboratory tests to rapidly diagnose Kawasaki disease. Kawasaki disease (KD) is a serious childhood disorder that requires rapid recognition and treatment to prevent permanent or fatal damage to the coronary arteries. To learn more, click here.
