Many organizations work to make D.C. a place where people who are struggling have a chance at something better. We’re listing some of them here for our 8th annual “Give It Up, D.C.” issue, which is a partnership with the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington. The Catalogue reviews all of the organizations on its roster to make sure each one is well-managed, makes an impact, and is in good financial order. And if you’re looking to volunteer, check out the volunteer opportunity spotlight list, too.
