Kids In Need Distributors Named ‘One of the Best’ Nonprofits by the Catalogue for Philanthropy
As it Celebrates its 17th Anniversary Serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor Kids In Need Distributors
WASHINGTON, D.C.—5.28.2019—After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Kids In Need Distributors (KIND) to be part of the Class of 2019-20. KIND has undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 150+ local experts, and has met the Catalogue’s high standards. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support. KIND’s mission is to provide food to Montgomery County Public School kids on the weekend in an effort to eliminate childhood hunger in the county.
This year the Catalogue celebrates its 17th anniversary: since its inception it has raised $40 million for nonprofits in the region. It also offers trainings and neighborhood-based opportunities for collaboration.
This year, reviewers helped select 78 nonprofits to feature in the print edition, 36 of which are new to the Catalogue this year. It also selected an additional 36 nonprofits to be re-featured on its website. The network now includes 400+ vetted nonprofits working in the arts, education, environment, and human services sectors throughout Greater Washington.
“People want to get involved in their community—they want to make a difference, close to home. Based on our rigorous review process, we believe that KIND is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Matt Gayer, Director of Community and Nonprofit Development at the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
“In one of the richest counties in the richest country in the world, childhood hunger should not exist. Being in the Catalogue for Philanthropy will bring greater awareness to our efforts and provide incredible means for the community to be able to support our efforts.” –Jeremy Lichtenstein, President & Founder – KIND
The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. And they believe in KIND to continue to further that positive change, working each day to lift up, strengthen, and enrich our local community.
