Calvary Women’s Services Selected by Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington

After undergoing a rigorous evaluation, Calvary Women’s Services has been recognized as one of the area’s best community-based nonprofits by the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington.

Since 2003, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has aimed to raise visibility and resources for the area’s best nonprofits, and to use strategic philanthropy to make giving a more meaningful experience for donors.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be selected by the Catalogue for Philanthropy, and it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to partner with them for a third time,” said Calvary Executive Director Kris Thompson after receiving the announcement. The nonprofit was previously featured by the Catalogue in 2004 and 2008-2009.

Calvary Women’s Services’ programs offer homeless women in DC a safe place to live and a comprehensive array of support services to empower them to end homelessness and achieve their personal goals for healthy lives and financial independence. Every five days a woman moves from Calvary Women’s Services into her own home.

The local nonprofit was chosen from a competitive pool of nearly 220 organizations by Catalogue reviewers to be featured in the annual publication. Calvary Women’s Services is one of 74 organizations that will be recognized for their distinction, merit, and impact in the 2012-2013 edition of the Catalogue, which is set to be published this November.

“The Catalogue for Philanthropy has an incredible impact in connecting individuals, local corporations and nonprofits to do good in the community,” commented Calvary Board President Tracy Ballard. “We are so grateful that they chose to recognize Calvary Women’s Services for its excellence.”
