Out Teach Named ‘One of the Best’ Nonprofits by the Catalogue for Philanthropy

As it Celebrates its 18th Anniversary Working in the Greater Washington Region, the Catalogue for Philanthropy is Proud to Honor Out Teach

WASHINGTON, D.C.—After an intentional application and selection process, the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington has selected Out Teach to be part of the Class of 2021-22. Out Teach 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.

Out Teach re-engineers Science instruction by equipping teachers in under-resourced elementary schools to use the outdoors as a living laboratory to create hands-on inquiry-based cross-curricular experiences proven to boost achievement in every subject.

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 Out Teach is a critical local nonprofit in our region,” says Matt Gayer, Co-Executive Director of the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

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