The Community Foundation of Howard County grants help keep our programs affordable.
By designating a gift to directly support the Community Foundation of Howard County, you are making a lasting impact on the areas of greatest need within our community. Our general endowment supports the Foundation's grantmaking efforts across the County. Every year, we receive hundreds of applications for support of many worthy causes. Unfortunately, the needs are often greater than our resources can support. You can help us increase our grantmaking capacity by making a contribution today.
To recognize donors who support the core work of the Foundation, we have established a new annual giving society, “Friends of the Community Foundation of Howard County." Members will be listed on our website and in our annual publications. Those who contribute at The Chairman’s Circle level will be invited to a special annual appreciation reception to hear more about our progress.
