December is a big month for the Catalogue for Philanthropy. In addition to promoting the 2012 Catalogue and our new group of nonprofits, we also hosted our 10th anniversary celebration, Inspiration to Action. We hope that many of you were able to join us for the festivities.
The Catalogue team was honored to celebrate 10 years of creating meaningful connections between caring citizens and worthy community causes with such a passionate group of nonprofits, donors, friends, and other community supporters. The event featured a reception, nonprofit performance showcase, and intimate benefit dinner. A highlight of the dinner was a live auction, featuring ‘exclusive experiences,’ which raised over $20,000 for the Catalogue.
Jane Harman and the Harman Family Foundation also made a surprise announcement — a Challenge Grant, which matched new and increasing gifts made or pledged on December 3rd to either the Catalogue or our charities. The grant raised $200,000 for Catalogue nonprofits at the dinner — $100,000 in pledges matched by the $100,000 challenge: a great way to kick off the giving season!
As always, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is grateful for your continued support. While you browse through the 2012 Catalogue and select your favorite nonprofits for this year, we hope that the Catalogue for Philanthropy is one of them. Please consider making a gift to support the work that we do this holiday season, and all year long.
