We’ve all been there before – you want to give back to your community but don’t know where to start. Or maybe you want to donate to a charity but you’re not sure how your dollars will be spent. It’s normal to wonder, “Will my donation really make an impact?”
Good news! The Catalogue for Philanthropy is dedicated to helping you find the perfect charity and ensuring that your dollar makes a real difference.
Here are five ways you can make a difference in your community through the Catalogue:

For $50, you can cover the cost of gas to deliver food to 12 families through ALIVE!, an organization providing emergency food and financial assistance.
3. Enrich Greater Washington’s Arts and Culture Scene
For $50, you can empower at-risk youth through photography and advocacy training by covering the cost of a framed print for one student at Critical Exposure.
