Docs In Progress Named "One of the Best" Nonprofits

As it celebrates its 16th anniversary serving the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is proud to honor Docs In Progress.

June 6, 2018

After a careful vetting process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Docs In Progress to be part of the Class of 2018-19. We have undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 120+ experts in the local philanthropic field, and has met the Catalogue’s high standards. 

Docs In Progress gives individuals the tools to tell stories through documentary film to educate, inspire, and transform the way people view their world. This is our second time being selected for the Catalogue (we also were selected in 2014-15). 

The network now includes 400+ vetted nonprofits working in the arts, education, environment, and human services sectors throughout Greater Washington. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support. “People want to know where to give and they need trusted information. Based on our in-depth review, we believe that Docs In Progress is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Bob Wittig, Executive Director of the Catalogue for Philanthropy. "We are honored to be featured in the Catalogue again this year," said Docs In Progress Executive Director Erica Ginsberg, "This seal of approval has been key to our continued growth as a nonprofit."

The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. As the only locally-focused guide to giving, its goal is to create visibility for the best community-based charities, fuel their growth with philanthropic dollars, and create a movement for social good in the greater Washington region. This year the Catalogue celebrates its 16th anniversary: since its inception it has raised $40 million for nonprofits in the region. It also offers trainings, neighborhood-based opportunities for collaboration, and a speakers series for individuals who want to learn about and engage with the needs, challenges, and accomplishments of our shared community.
