As it Celebrates its 15th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor After-School All-Stars DC


WASHINGTON, D.C.—June 12, 2017—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected After-School All-Stars DC to be part of the Class of 2017-18. After-School All-Stars DC 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.  After-School All-Stars DC’s mission is to provide comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life.


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. (International charities must be headquartered in the DC region.)


“People want to know where to give and they need trusted information. Based on our in-depth review, we believe that After-School All-Stars DC is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Barbara Harman, founder and president of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.


“As After-School All-Stars expands its footprint in DC, we need the community support to offer our All-Stars the programming they deserve, to help them succeed in school and life and reach their full potential.  Being accepted in the Catalogue for Philanthropy is instrumental in reaching out to a larger audience, and it will give After-School All-Stars the chance to start fruitful conversations with individual donors interested in supporting us, as well as elevate the organization’s profile in the philanthropic community.” Says After-School All-Stars DC Executive Director, Daniela Grigioni.



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.
