As it Celebrates its 15th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor Seabury Resources for Aging
WASHINGTON, D.C.—06.12.2017 —After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Seabury Resources for Aging to be part of the Class of 2017-18. Seabury Resources for Aging 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. Seabury’s mission is to provide personalized, affordable services and housing options to help older adults in the greater Washington, DC area live with independence and dignity.
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 Seabury Resources for Aging is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Barbara Harman, founder and president of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
“Since 1924 Seabury has assisted older adults in meeting their basic needs – healthy meals, housing, transportation, and more. But meeting basic needs is never enough and Seabury builds community through programs that enable older adults to age with dignity, respect, and joy. The Catalog for Philanthropy is essential in getting Seabury’s name out to prospective donors and foundations so that we can continue to provide innovative aging services to the older adults that need them most.” – Deborah Royster, Chief Executive Officer
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.
