As it Celebrates its 17th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor Children’s Chorus of Washington

 WASHINGTON, D.C.—5.28.2019—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Children’s Chorus of Washington (CCW) to be part of the Class of 2019-20. CCW has undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 150+ local experts, and has met the Catalogue’s high standards. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support.  CCW’s mission is to provide the best choral music experience for young people in the nation’s capital through its exceptional educational programs, performance opportunities, and community partnerships.

 This year the Catalogue celebrates its 17th anniversary: since its inception it has raised $40 million for nonprofits in the region. It also offers trainings and neighborhood-based opportunities for collaboration.

This year, reviewers helped select 78 nonprofits to feature in the print edition, 36 of which are new to the Catalogue this year. It also selected an additional 36 nonprofits to be re-featured on its website. 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 Children’s Chorus of Washington is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Matt Gayer, Director of Community and Nonprofit Development at the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

 “The Catalogue for Philanthropy has been an invaluable resource for CCW over the years. We are proud to be selected as a nonprofit partner in the 2019-20 class as we continue our work bringing choral music education to more children throughout Greater Washington,” says CCW Board President Laura Kopp.

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