Are you looking for a gift for the person who has everything?

Or perhaps want to give a gift that is more meaningful and maybe unconventional?

The Community Foundation of Southern Maryland is kicking off a new program to offer folks an inspiring and convenient way to give while helping to support the invaluable work of nonprofits in our community. Your donations may be in any amount and put in your name, or in honor or in memory of someone special. Upon your request, we will send the recipient a note on how their gift will be spent. As the purchaser of this gift, you will receive a tax deduction letter from us. Giving this way is more personal and easy.

The donations will be pooled with other donations and included in either our Community Grant Fund to support all areas or may go towards specific fields of interests like: Arts and Culture Fund; Education and Scholarships Fund; Environment Fund; General Community Improvements Fund; Health and Wellness Fund; Veterans Fund and Youth Initiatives Fund.

For those of you who wish to start your own Fund, the process is simple and can be accomplished within hours, if need be.

For all Funds, we accept donations of cash, stocks, real estate, IRA’s and other deferred gifts. Your Fund could help the entire southern Maryland community or support a specific charitable organization, whatever you so choose. Funds may be endowed or non-endowed. Funds may be named or you could give anonymously.
