Thank goodness for people like you who care
about their neighbors and their community. Your generosity makes our work possible and we are deeply grateful.
You can give to a cause, a specific organization, or to your community. Donate for yourself, for a friend or loved one, or in memory of someone special. Find a fund that inspires you and help make a change for the better!
We support over 70 local charities and non-profits in the areas of animal welfare, the arts, economic development, education, the environment, health and human services, historic preservation and youth.
Donations to this fund have the greatest impact because they can be used to support areas of greatest need and build capacity to do more good. The unrestricted fund enables our professional staff to respond to community needs through philanthropic leadership, commitment, and compassion.
Through a new Maryland state tax credit called “Endow Maryland” tax credits are available to donors who contribute at least $500 to permanent charitable funds at qualified community foundations in Maryland.
Your gift to the Chesapeake Charities Community Endowment Fund may qualify for a 25% tax credit on your 2015 tax return. Chesapeake Charities has funds available to offer on a first-come, first-served basis.
