After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Phoenix Bikes to be part of the Class of 2017-18. A renewal of this honor having been selected as part of the 2012-2013 class, Phoenix Bikes has undergone an extensive review process and met the Catalogue’s high standards once again. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support.
This year, reviewers helped select 76 charities to feature in the print edition, 34 of which are new to the Catalogue this year. It also selected an additional 32 nonprofits to be re-featured on its website, and congratulated ten on growing beyond its $3-million budgetary limit. The network now includes over 400 vetted nonprofits working in the arts, education, environment, human services, and international sectors throughout greater Washington.
“People want to know where to give and they need trusted information. Based on our in-depth review, we believe that Phoenix Bikes is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Barbara Harman, founder and president of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
ABOUT THE CATALOGUE FOR PHILANTHROPY: The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. As the only locally-focused guide to giving, its goal is to create visibility for the best community-based charities, fuel their growth with philanthropic dollars, and create a movement for social good in the greater Washington region. The Catalogue charges no fees; it raises funds separately to support its work. This year, the Catalogue celebrates its 15th anniversary: since its inception it has raised $38 million for nonprofits in the region. It also offers trainings, neighborhood-based opportunities for collaboration, and a speakers series for individuals who want to learn about and engage with the needs, challenges, and accomplishments of our shared community.
