The Giving Square Named ‘One of the Best’ Nonprofits by the Catalogue for Philanthropy

As it Celebrates its 18th Anniversary Working in the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor The Giving Square

WASHINGTON, D.C.—5.28.2021—

After an intentional application and selection process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected The Giving Square to be part of the Class of 2021-22. The Giving Square has undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 170+ local community advocates, and has been found to be a critical local nonprofit. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support.

The Giving Square's mission is to advance the democratic ideals of equality and civic responsibility by recognizing children as leaders for a new model of philanthropy, one grounded in our natural empathetic connections to the experiences and needs of others. The Giving Square envisions a world where communities thrive because everyone, especially children, are active, empathetic, and impactful contributors to society.

This year, the Catalogue’s volunteer review team helped select 87 nonprofits to feature in the

print edition, almost half of which are new to the Catalogue this year. Over 70% of the

organizations are women-led, and over 40% are BIPOC-led. The network now includes 400+

vetted nonprofits working in the arts, education, environment, and human services sectors

throughout Greater Washington.

“People want to get involved in their community—they want to make a difference, close to

home. Based on our rigorous review process, we believe that The Giving Square is a critical local nonprofit in our region,” says Matt Gayer, Co-Executive Director of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

Amy Neugebauer, Executive Director and Founder of The Giving Square announced: "We deeply admire the Catalogue. We are so proud and honored to be accepted into the Catalogue for Philanthropy’s 2021-22 Class as #OneoftheBest!"

The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. And they believe in The Giving Square to continue to further that positive change, working each day to lift up, strengthen, and enrich our local community.
