501cTECH is honored to announce its recognition as one of Greater Washington’s best community-based charities in the 2013-2014 Catalogue for Philanthropy. This award reflects 501cTECH's status as a highly effective local charity, working to deliver sustainable technology solutions for nonprofits serving the common good.
“The Catalogue for Philanthropy consistently features outstanding DC-area nonprofits that are making a meaningful impact in the community, so it is an incredible honor to be recognized again in this year’s issue,” said 501cTECH CEO Julie Chapman. “We are looking forward to meeting the technology needs of nonprofits who find us through the 2013/2014 Catalogue.”
501cTECH was one of 74 charities selected for the 11th annual Catalogue for Philanthropy, which has, since 2003, raised more than $21 million for featured nonprofits. The Catalogue's vetting process is rigorous: members of a 120-person review team, made up of foundations, corporations, peer nonprofits and the philanthropic advisory community, evaluate charities on the basis of program impact and fiscal soundness and each featured charity is visited on-site by at least one member of the review team.
“Donors know they can trust the Catalogue to help them make smart decisions about local nonprofits where their contributions will really make a difference,” notes Catalogue President Barbara Harman. “The Washington, DC region ranks third in wealth disparity in the nation – having one of the most affluent (and well-educated) populations in the country, and also one of the poorest. We are in a unique position to help our neighbors by connecting donors and volunteers to worthy, local nonprofits working to strengthen the D.C. region. The Catalogue makes it easy to learn about community needs and to help meet them.”
In November, 25,000 individuals and hundreds of family foundations will receive copies of the print Catalogue. Find 501cTECH's listing here, request a Catalogue here, or browse the Catalogue's online listings here to give where you live today.
