"The Catalogue’s multiplier effect is probably ten-fold: it catapults smaller organizations to new heights of visibility, and it leads, very directly, to new dollars. The CFP is advancing philanthropy in our nation’s capital at a time when we need it the most."
The Catalogue introduces you to high impact, carefully evaluated, community-based nonprofits with budgets below $3 million. Though they comprise the great majority of all charities, the public rarely hears about them because most cannot afford to make themselves heard. Yet they are right here, working hard to make life better in every arena of our lives: protecting our rivers, keeping the arts alive, teaching our children to succeed in school, healing the uninsured, protecting our vulnerable citizens at home and abroad.
In ten years the review team that evaluates our nonprofits has grown from 20 to over 100 active members who select 70 plus charities for our print Catalogue from over 200 applications. Our rigorous evaluation process is designed to provide you with a carefully vetted list of excellent, trustworthy nonprofits — so you can spend your valuable time reading, exploring, and discovering what matters to you.
So explore by field, view all nonprofits in a list, or search using key words — all at the left of your screen. And please check out our How to Give section, where you will find a Gift Registry, Gift Cards, Especially for Kids, and more.
