About Catalogue for Philanthropy

"I first learned of Fairfax CASA through the Catalogue and I am constantly astounded by the extent to which my service as a volunteer has expanded my concept of family, sharpened my sense of service, and tied me closer to the community in which I have lived for thirtyfive years. It has given me, late in life, a newfound sense of personal fulfillment and a higher purpose. Becoming part of the CASA family is, quite simply, one of the best and most rewarding decisions I have ever made."

Steve Ward,

Fairfax CASA Volunteer

The Catalogue for Philanthropy takes the guesswork out of giving by identifying the best community-based charities in Washington D.C. and nearby Maryland and Virginia. Our network of more than 350 vetted charities is made up of organizations with budgets below $3 million that serve the environment, arts, education and human services throughout Greater Washington. And we donít just stop with producing our annual print catalogue: we also create resources and run educational workshops for our charities, elevating their capacity to do good Ė here, where we live. Since 2003, our inaugural year, the Catalogue for Philanthropy has raised over $24 million dollars for the Washington DC region. We charge no fees and raise funds separately to support our work. To learn more about our process (such as how we vet, select and educate our nonprofits), click here.

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!
