Partners and Programs

The Community Foundation of Howard County (CFHoCo) exists to improve the quality of life for everyone.

We connect caring people with causes that matter to them to encourage and facilitate charitable giving.

We disperse grants and scholarships for education, the arts, and to fund critical support for vulnerable members of our community.

With our deep understanding of the county’s economic, social and cultural needs, we help donors understand the community’s greatest challenges and identify the most impactful ways to give back.

CFHoCO staff help donors learn more about organizations and programs in areas they most care about. We organize meetings with nonprofits to give donors a deeper understanding of their mission and operations and discuss ways their contributions can make the biggest difference.
