We’re thrilled to announce that Thrive DC has been selected to be featured in the 2012-13 Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington! A panel of over 100 expert reviewers from area foundations, corporate giving programs, and peer non-profit organizations evaluated 220 applications and Thrive DC is one of 74 outstanding nonprofits to be featured this year. Thrive DC was also included in the 2008-09 Catalogue and has been featured on their website ever since.
Now in its tenth year, the Catalogue’s mission is to connect caring citizens with worthy community causes. Barbara Harman, President and Editor of the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington, says, “Charities were selected for excellence, cost-effectiveness, and impact.”
In addition to building networks of engaged donors and great nonprofits, the Catalogue provides charities with a stamp of approval that tells donors they can invest with confidence because the Catalogue vets its family of nonprofits with great care.
25,000 individuals and hundreds of family foundations will receive copies of the print Catalogue in November. You can order one for yourself by visiting the Catalogue website at (cfp-dc.org). At the same time, you can check out the online Catalogue which connects donors with volunteer opportunities, events, news, videos, and more.
We want to thank the Catalogue for Philanthropy for this honor and the important work they do to support our community. Congratulations to the other non-profits that will be featured in the 2012-13 Catalogue. We’re in great company!
