“The Community Foundation of Howard County is pleased to work with so many amazing nonprofits directly benefiting the lives of people in our community,” said Beverly White-Seals, president and CEO of the foundation. “With a mission of inspiring lifelong giving and connecting people, places and organizations to worthy causes across Howard County, this is the best part of the job. Our donors trust us to be the hub for philanthropic connections to ensure financial resources get in the hands of the nonprofits that can provide the greatest impact.”
The deadline to apply is midnight on Monday, March 22. A 12-person grants committee, comprised of CFHoCo board members and community volunteers, painstakingly reviews every grant request.
