Catalogue for Philanthropy

Veronique sent a link to me for the web site of the Catalogue for Philanthropy. Go take a look. They have the charities broken out into different categories, like: Nature, Culture, Education, etc.

From their “About Us” page:

ABOUT US

The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington introduces you to the wide world of smaller, local charities – with budgets below $2 million. Though they comprise about 85% of all nonprofits, the public rarely hears about them because most cannot afford to make themselves heard. Yet dollar-for-dollar, they offer some of the most cost-effective opportunities for philanthropy. If “making a difference” is one of your goals, then excellent smaller charities may be for you.
