Grants and Scholarships

For more than 50 years, our purpose has been to lead and inspire powerful and rewarding philanthropy that improves the quality of life and prosperity of Howard County. We fulfill this purpose by working with donors, nonprofits, local businesses and community leaders to address key community issues.

Thanks to generous donors who have established or contributed to funds at the Community Foundation of Howard County (CFHoCo), we award grants to nonprofit organizations and scholarship funds to help students pursuing post-secondary education. All of these activities are undertaken with the aim of producing a strong and vibrant Howard County community for generations to come.
