We are honored to announce that Breast Care for Washington was selected for inclusion in the 2015/2016 Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington as one of the region’s best community based charities. This award reflects Breast Care for Washington’s status as a highly effective local charity, working to provide access to breast care to all women, regardless of their ability to pay. The Catalogue connects caring citizens with worthy community causes and has raised more than $28 million for featured nonprofits since 2003.
“Donors know they can trust the Catalogue to help them make smart decisions about local nonprofits where their contributions will really make a difference,” notes Catalogue President Barbara Harman. “The Washington, DC region ranks third in wealth disparity in the nation – having one of the most affluent (and well-educated) populations in the country, and also one of the poorest. 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.”
