Whether you were born and raised here or you were attracted to Howard County by the unparalleled quality of life and proximity to Washington and Baltimore, we each have an interest in ensuring the community’s prosperity. With a gift to our general endowment, The Fund for the Common Good, or by endowing your own unrestricted component fund with a commitment of $10,000 or more, you can make a lasting impact on the areas of greatest need within our community and help improve the quality of life in Howard County now and for generations to come.
Distributions from the unrestricted endowment are the primary source of funding for the Foundation’s Community Grants program. Our grants touch nearly every aspect of community life, including human services, arts and culture, educational and environmental and civic issues. See our recent grants. Every year, we receive hundreds of applications requesting support for many worthy causes. We approach grant-making with thoughtfulness and care, always calling upon our extensive knowledge of community issues and needs to make our decisions. Unfortunately, the needs are often greater than our resources can support. You can help us increase our grant-making capacity by making a contribution to the Fund for the Common Good or establishing your own unrestricted fund today.
