As it Celebrates its 18th Anniversary Working in the Greater Washington Region,

the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor DC Strings Workshop

WASHINGTON, D.C.—5.28.2021—After an intentional application and selection process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected DC Strings Workshop to be part of the Class of 2021-22. DC Strings Workshop has undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 170+ local community advocates, and has been found to be a critical local nonprofit. Potential donors can be confident that the nonprofits in the Catalogue are worthy of their support.  DC String’s Workshop’s mission is to bring music to all parts of the region!

This year, the Catalogue’s volunteer review team helped select 87 nonprofits to feature in the print edition, almost half of which are new to the Catalogue this year. Over 70% of the organizations are women-led, and over 40% are BIPOC-led. 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 DC Strings’ is a critical local nonprofit in our region,” says Matt Gayer, Co-Executive Director of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

“We are thrilled to receive this importance distinction from The Catalogue and know that this confidence will continue to allow our organization to sustain our programs and ability to reach more students, present more concerts and continue to engage our community, said Andrew Lee, Artistic Executive Director of DC Strings Workshop.”

The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. And they believe in DC Strings Workshop to continue to further that positive change, working each day to lift up, strengthen, and enrich our local community.
