One World Education Chosen for 2013-14 Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington

One World Education is proud to announce that it has been selected by the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington to be featured in the 2013-14 Catalogue. A panel of over 100 expert reviewers from area foundations, corporate giving programs, and peer non-profit organizations evaluated over 210 applications; One World Education is one of 73 outstanding nonprofits to be featured in print this year.

Now in its eleventh year, the Catalogue’s mission is to connect caring citizens with worthy community causes. According to Barbara Harman, President and Editor of the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington, "Many nonprofits continue to suffer during the slow economic recovery, and the search for support has been intensified by the loss of government (and sometimes foundation) funding. Individual donors can continue to make a real difference, keeping great organizations afloat during these challenging times.

The Catalogue has helped raise over $21 million since its inception in 2003. After celebrating it's 10th Anniversary last year, the Catalogue is poised to jump into a new decade of nonprofit support and community engagement.

25,000 individuals and hundreds of family foundations will receive copies of the print Catalogue in November, and many others will visit the Catalogue website, or access the Catalogue's customized portal at work. The online Catalogue also connects donors with volunteer opportunities, events, news, videos, and more.

"Charities were selected for excellence, cost-effectiveness, and impact" Harman said. “These are certainly among the best community-based nonprofits in the Washington region.”
