Who We Are
Community Foundations are a non-profit, 501(c)3, public charity created by and for the people in a certain geographical area. They are used as a vehicle for giving, designed to pool donations into a coordinated investment. In addition, they are grant-makers dedicated primarily to the social improvement of a given place.
The Community Foundation of Southern Maryland is overseen by a diverse volunteer board and operated by paid professional staff with expertise in understanding the community’s needs, opportunities and resources.
