New Catalogue for Philanthropy Hits DC

The Catalogue for Philanthropy is a family of nonprofits is over 300 strong and represents the tremendous range of good works in the greater Washington nonprofit community. Since November 2003, their inaugural year, they have helped raise more than $9.6 million from new donors for featured nonprofits.

Ninety reviewers from foundations, corporations, corporate giving programs, giving circles, larger nonprofits, and the DC government evaluate applicants for distinction, merit, and impact. Every featured charity has been “site visited” by at least one reviewer, some by as many as five. Their Certified Public Accountant has experience in forensic accounting and scrutinizes all finalists: cost-effectiveness and financial transparency are critical.

The Catalogue for Philanthropy is the most comprehensive compilation of non-profits in the District. I encourage you to download a copy today HERE or request one online and make your financial commitment to a local DC non-profit who greatly needs your support.
