As it Celebrates its 15th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing
WASHINGTON, D.C.—June 12, 2017—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing to be part of the Class of 2017-18. The Wendt Center 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. The Wendt Center’s mission is to help those who are living with grief, loss, life-threatening illness and trauma.
“The Wendt Center is proud to receive this recognition from the Catalogue for Philanthropy,” says Michelle Palmer, Executive Director of the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing. “Over the 41 years of our existence, we have built many strong and trusting connections throughout our community. This honor from the Catalogue will help us expand to new relationships and further improve the reach of our services.”
This year the Catalogue celebrates its 15th anniversary. Since its inception, it has raised $38 million for nonprofits in the region. 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.
“People want to know where to give and they need trusted information. Based on our in-depth review, we believe that the Wendt Center is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Barbara Harman, founder and president of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
