As part of its annual Community Changemakers event, Spur Local has named Danielle M. Reyes, President & CEO of the Crimsonbridge Foundation, as the 2023 Barbara Harman Changemaker in Philanthropy.
Spur Local recognized Danielle, who has spent the majority of her professional career in the nonprofit sector of the Greater Washington region, for her significant contributions to the sector. With 30 years of experience in philanthropy, education, and the nonprofit sector, Danielle has been an influential, innovative, and active partner in creating positive community change. A former DC nonprofit leader herself, she is passionate about relationship-building, supporting nonprofit leaders, and investing in community-based organizations, which is demonstrated in the entrepreneurial and inclusive philanthropy model she has fostered at the Crimsonbridge Foundation.
“I’ve been a part of Spur Local’s journey for twenty years. So, this was very meaningful to me,” says Danielle. “To be honored as a Community Changemaker, receive an award named after Barbara Harman, and be recognized alongside fellow leaders who’ve made important contributions to the Washington-region community, is incredibly special.”
Formerly known as the Catalogue for Philanthropy, Spur Local was founded in 2003 as an annual publication for donors to discover and support community-based nonprofits with limited capacity to tell their stories to a larger audience. Danielle is proud to have served in the first cohort of Catalogue application reviewers and as an inaugural supporter of the Learning Commons. Spur Local is a community partner of Crimsonbridge Foundation’s LeaderBridge initiative.
