Our 2014 Community Grant program provided local nonprofits with $305,003 in the areas of social services, the arts, education and the environment to improve the lives of those who live or work in Howard County. Although these grants will make a tangible difference in our community, they represent partial funding of the general operating services or specific programs these grantees actually requested. Through this program you can make a difference in your community by making a personal grant to one or more of these nonprofits. Learn how you can “Make a Difference.”
