Catalogue Class of 2020-21


As we celebrate our 18th year, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington is proud to announce the Class of 2020-21. Each of these nonprofits has been chosen, from a competitive applicant pool, as "one of the best" local nonprofits in the region.

The organizations listed below have successfully passed a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 170+ pro bono reviewers from foundations, corporate giving programs, peer nonprofits, local government agencies, and the philanthropic advisory community. Let them know that you are proud of their achievements: congratulate them with a “shout out” on social media, send them an email, or support their work.
