After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Prince William Conservation Alliance (PWCA) to be part of the Class of 2018-2019. Prince William Conservation Alliance has undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of more than 120 experts in the local philanthropic field, and has met  the Catalogue’s high standards.

Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support. Prince William Conservation Alliance’s mission is to inspire community action and create sustainable communities for all.

The  Catalogue celebrates its 16th anniversary this year. Since its inception it has raised $40 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.

This year, reviewers helped select 77 charities to feature in the print edition, 38 of which are new to the Catalogue this year. It also selected an additional 49 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.

PWCA Executive Director Kim Hosen says, “Prince William Conservation Alliance is delighted to be recognized by the Catalogue for Philanthropy. Since 2002, our work has opened doors to community action, from reclaiming native habitats to support for smart growth initiatives. This important recognition highlights the value of our hard work and helps us advance our goals over the next 16 years.”

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.
