Catalogue for Philanthropy Endorses Posse as “One of the Best” in D.C. Region

Posse D.C. has been a proud member of the Catalogue family since 2006.

The Posse Foundation is honored to announce its recognition as one of Greater Washington’s best community-based charities in the 2014-2015 Catalogue for Philanthropy. This award reflects Posse’s status as a successful college access and leadership development program for dynamic young people. 

“It is an honor to be featured once again in the Catalogue for Philanthropy, which has served as a longstanding champion of our work and played a significant role in expanding Posse’s local footprint," says Posse D.C. Director Tamara Wilds Lawson. "We are incredibly grateful for the Catalogue’s support and look forward to continuing the partnership over the next four years.”

More than 2o0 organizations applied to be part of the 12th annual Catalogue, and The Posse Foundation was one of 78 selected after a rigorous vetting process. Members of a 120-person review team evaluate charities on the basis of program impact and fiscal soundness and each featured charity is visited on-site by at least one member of the review team. The Posse Foundation has been a member of the Catalogue family since 2006.

“Donors know they can trust the Catalogue to help them make smart decisions about local nonprofits where their contributions will really make a difference,” says Catalogue President Barbara Harman. “We are in a unique position to help our neighbors by connecting donors and volunteers to worthy, local nonprofits working to strengthen the D.C. region. The Catalogue makes it easy to learn about community needs and to help meet them.”

In November, 25,000 individuals and hundreds of family foundations will receive copies of the print Catalogue. Find The Posse Foundation’s listing here.
