The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington is honored to announce our newest group of local charities recognized as among *the best* in our region. The 12th edition of the Catalogue for Philanthropy will feature 78 organizations in its print Catalogue, and an additional 18 organizations online. To see the full list of organizations, click here.
Spanning across all four categories of Nature, Culture, Education, and Human Services, each charity selected for the Catalogue underwent a rigorous vetting process conducted by our 120+ person review team.
One of the highlights from this year’s list includes five “growth” charities that increased their operating budget above Catalogue’s $3 million limit since their last application (charities may re-apply to the Catalogue every 4 years). A big “congratulations” to DC Bilingual Public Charter School, Jubilee Housing, Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School, Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia, and United States Capitol Historical Society on their growth!
What’s next? Over the next several months, the Catalogue team will be working hard to write, edit, and produce the 2014-2015 Catalogue so it can be used as a valuable guide to giving by more than 25,000 individuals in our region during the holiday season (and beyond). While the 2014-2015 Catalogue won’t be mailed until November 1st, you can still view our 2013-2014 charities or browse the digital edition of the Catalogue at Catalogue-DC.org.
A special thank you to our dedicated review team, partners, board members, and Catalogue staff who made this application and review process one of our best yet. Stay tuned for future blog posts when we’ll give you a peek inside the Catalogue production process!
