PRESS RELEASE: Casa Chirilagua Named ‘One of the Best’ Nonprofits by the Catalogue for Philanthropy

As it Celebrates its 15th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor Casa Chirilagua 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—June 12th, 2017—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Casa Chirilagua to be part of the Class of 2017-18. Casa Chirilagua has undergone an extensive review process, and has met the Catalogue’s high standards. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support. Casa Chirilagua’s mission is to develop relationships with families to see the Chirilagua neighborhood transformed by Christ.

 

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.

 

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 $3million 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 Casa Chirilagua is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Barbara Harman, founder and president of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

 

“We at Casa Chirilagua are honored to receive this recognition and excited about the impact this will make on our community and the families, teens and kids we serve,” says Dawnielle Miller, co-founder and Executive Director of Casa Chirilagua.

 

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.
