"The Catalogue gives me peace of mind, knowing the charities I select are well-run, deserving, and faithful to their missions. Thank you, CFP!"
Initiated and developed by the Harman Family Foundation, with help from founding and continuing partners the Meyer Foundation and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation (2003 - present) and the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation (2005 - present). See our key investors on the bottom right of your screen and click Partners, above, to view all of our supporters.
Our family of nonprofits is over 300 strong and represents the tremendous range of good works in the greater Washington nonprofit community. Since November 2003, our inaugural year, we have helped raise more than $20 million from new donors for featured nonprofits.
Over one hundred reviewers from foundations, corporations, corporate giving programs, giving circles, the philanthropic advisory community, and peer nonprofits, evaluate applicants (about 250 a year) for distinction, merit, and impact. Seventy are selected annually. Every featured charity has been “site visited” by at least one reviewer, some by as many as five. Our auditors scrutinize all finalists: cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and financial transparency are critical. And all organizations on the Catalogue website are re-reviewed every four years. (In some cases organizations may be removed from our website before it is time for a review if we receive information that suggests they are no longer suitable members of our network.) We leverage the region’s knowledge about philanthropy for the benefit of the entire community.
The Catalogue represents some of the best smaller nonprofits in the Greater Washington region.
The Catalogue's Tenth Anniversary Video premiered at Inspiration to Action 2012 on December 3rd. We looked back at the impact that CFP has made over the past ten years -- and are excited to start looking to the future!
The Catalogue is a registered 501(c)3 organization.
