As it Celebrates its 17th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor City Wildlife, Inc.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—5.28.2019—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected City Wildlife, Inc. to be part of the Class of 2019-20. City Wildlife 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. City Wildlife’s goals are to manage a rescue center to assist sick, orphaned, and injured wild animals and return them to the wild; to promote the enjoyment of native wildlife and harmonious co-existence with wild animals; and to protect the District of Columbia’s wild places for animal habitats.
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 City Wildlife 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 believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. And they believe in City Wildlife to continue to further that positive change, working each day to lift up, strengthen, and enrich our local community.
