Last night, Byte Back graduates heard their names called, heard the cheers of their classmates, family, and friends, and walked across the stage to shake hands, smile for a picture. Every year, each Byte Back grad becomes a member of their graduating class, a group of proud peers who have accomplished something great. This year, Byte Back gets to do that, too.
The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Byte Back to be a part of the Class of 2018-19, a distinguished group of the DC area’s best local nonprofits. Over 120 philanthropic experts reviewed hundreds of nonprofit applications, conducting a rigorous review to identify organizations that meet the Catalogue’s high standards. The result is a guide to local nonprofits, a resource that potential donors can use to be confident when giving their support.
“People want to know where to give and they need trusted information. Based on our in-depth review, we believe that Byte Back is one of the best community-based nonprofits in the region,” says Bob Wittig, Executive Director of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
The Catalogue is also celebrating this year – 2018 is the organization’s 16th anniversary. Since its founding, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has raised $40 million for nonprofits in the region, provided trainings for nonprofit staff, facilitated collaborations, and organized a speakers series to help individuals engage with the needs, challenges, and accomplishments of the community. The Catalogue charges no fees, raising its own funds to support local organizations.
Byte Back is honored to be recognized by the Catalogue for Philanthropy and to be included in this venerable group of local organizations doing great work to improve the DC metro area. To find out more about the Catalogue’s Class of ’18-’19, visit cfp-dc.org.
