CFHoCo Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2023

As the philanthropic hub of Howard County, the Community Foundation plays a vital role in supporting the nonprofit sector and making a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families. Each year, the Annual Report serves as a snapshot of the Foundation’s achievements and highlights the incredible work being done by our grantees and partners. It is a testament to the power of collective giving and the impact that can be made when we come together as a community to support those in need.

As you flip through the pages of the Annual Report, you will see firsthand the impact that the Community Foundation has had on Howard County. From providing essential funding to critical programs and services, to supporting initiatives that promote affordable housing, education, health, the arts, environment and social justice, the Foundation truly is the pulse of the nonprofit sector in our community.

A key focus over the past year has been legacy gifts through planned giving. Legacy gifts are an important way for individuals to leave a lasting impact on their community and support causes that are near and dear to their hearts. By encouraging individuals to include the Community Foundation in their estate plans, we can build a strong foundation for the future and donors can ensure that their philanthropic goals will continue to be met for generations to come.

This year’s Annual Report also shines a spotlight on the Foundation’s support for nonprofit agency endowments. By creating endowments for local nonprofits, the Community Foundation is helping to ensure the sustainability and long-term success of these organizations. This support is crucial in helping them fulfill their missions and continue to serve the needs of our community.

So as we reflect on another successful year, let’s take a moment to celebrate the generosity and compassion of our community. Together, we have made a difference in the lives of so many, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thank you to all of our donors, partners, and supporters for making the work of the Community Foundation of Howard County possible. Here’s to another year of making a positive impact and changing lives for the better.
