Marco Polo World Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization founded in 2007. We are a non-religious and non-partisan organization. Our mission is to promote intercultural understanding and acceptance of diversity in the community. We launched the Annual DFW Dragon Boat, Kite and Lantern Festival as an effort to pursue our mission, as well as to showcase international culture and to celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Through this festival, we hope to bring together individuals and organizations from all different sectors of the community, and encourage local, regional and international interaction. MPWF is expanding the effort of pursuing our mission by offering scholarship awards to high school seniors and college underclassmen who show dedication to promoting intercultural understanding.

About DFW Dragon Boat Racing Club/Texas22
Dragon Boating is a proven employee/team-building activity and generates much enthusiasm among the participants. Our foundation's DFW Dragon Boat Racing Club opens to local companies and organizations for team building and culture diversity programs. This program was introduced to further the foundation's educational goals and to provide the guest with the history of the Dragon Boat. The club offers dragon boat classes throughout the year for individual groups, schools and corporations. Dragon boat rental services are also available.
