Give It Up, D.C. 2020 Giving Guide


If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that community organizations are an essential part of D.C. When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the region in March, these groups stepped up to ensure that D.C.’s vulnerable residents, among them, people experiencing homelessness, those who lost their jobs and don’t qualify for traditional unemployment benefits, and people in need of food. Despite the pandemic changing nearly everything about our lives—how we work, where we go, how we interact with others—community organizations continue to take care of their clients and offer some good news in a pretty dreary period.

With that being said, our annual guide to giving back, presented in partnership with the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington, feels particularly significant this year. The organizations you’ll read about below have gone above and beyond in the past few months to ensure that students are still learning, people are still taken care of, and everyone can continue to thrive. The staff at CFP have vetted every organization to ensure that they are in good financial standing. Better yet, CFP doesn’t take a cut from your donation, so every dollar you give goes straight to the organization. 

Although times are tough, in this season when we give thanks, we encourage you to support these organizations however you can. Your financial support will allow them to continue their work for the people of D.C. in good times and in bad. —Caroline Jones
