As we approach our celebration of the 10th Catalogue for Philanthropy, we look back to see how the Catalogue has grown and evolved.
The Catalogue’s review team is a staple of the work we do — providing the knowledge and expertise needed to determine which small charities truly are “one of the best.” From 55 in 2007, the review team grew to 100 in 2010 — and brought together individuals from foundations, corporate giving programs, giving circles, government agencies, and peer nonprofits.
2010 was also a landmark year for the Catalogue in terms of dollars raised. In our eighth year, Catalogue recorded over $2.8 million dollars raised by our nonprofits — a significant number, despite continuing economic challenges across the country.
