A Unique Charitable Opportunity

Endow Maryland provides an incentive for Marylanders to give back to their local communities in a meaningful and lasting way. You could qualify to receive a 25 percent Maryland tax credit when you give a gift between $500 and $50,000 to a permanent charitable fund, in addition to the Federal charitable deduction allowed for the gift.

How Does It Work?

Community Foundations in Maryland are sharing $250,000 in tax credits for 2017. These credits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Gifts must support a permanently endowed fund that provides grants or scholarships to an organization within Maryland. Funds with donor participation do not qualify. 

How Can I Apply?

  • Please contact Becki DeLauter, Philanthropic Services Associate, or call her at 301.695.7660 to verify that the fund you wish to support is eligible, or to learn about what funds qualify.
  • Download, print, and complete the Endow Maryland Commitment Form.
  • Return the form to the Community Foundation by choosing one of the following:
    • scan and email
    • drop off or mail to: 312 East Church Street, Frederick, MD 21701
    • fax to 301.695.7775
