    I am a member of the Nova Catholic Community which operates a small giving program in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. We are tax exempt under Section 501 (c) (3) and we are not a private foundation.

    I’d be interested in learning more about becoming a member of your grantmakers association. I will provide a link to our web site at a later time. Sincerely, Helen Gettys Michie
