A recognition shared by our sponsors, donors and partners. THANK YOU!
We are so proud to be selected once again for inclusion in the Catalogue for Philanthropy of Greater Washington. Nonprofits chosen for this honor have undergone a rigorous review process conducted by a team of 150+ local experts. These professionals look for organizations that are making a big impact while being effective and transparent stewards of donor funds. Being featured in the Catalogue for a third time is also a recognition of the importance of local farm and water supply protection - along with our impactful work in this effort. MCA is one of only 7 environmental nonprofits honored and we are far smaller than the average organization. It is the support of our donors and partners that lets us stay on the job and tenaciously punch above our weight in protection of local farms, open space and our water supply. See the video below for information about the nonprofits selected.

MCA is proud to announce that we have been recognized for a third time as one of the best small charities in the D.C. region by Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington. A panel of 110 expert reviewers from area foundations, corporate giving programs, and peer non-profit organizations evaluated 270 applications.
MCA is known as an effective and innovative non-profit whose efforts to preserve and promote Montgomery County’s nationally recognized 93,000 acre Ag Reserve have brought increased public and governmental support of local food production and farmland and open space preservation. Most importantly, MCA’s efforts are putting more farmers on the ground and keeping them there.
