About Catalogue for Philanthropy
"We value our place in the global community, but we always remember that we are citizens of our nation’s capital. Today the demand on our local, smaller nonprofits is greater than ever, and the Catalogue for Philanthropy has become our “go-to” source ... allowing us to join with others to make a bigger impact on the smaller organizations that care for our fellow citizens in the DC Metro area every day of the week."
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). Click SPONSORSto view all of our supporters.
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 don’t 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 – 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.

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!
