Strong Roots; New Strategies

Happy New Year and welcome to our new website!


Redesigned with community, transparency and engagement in mind, here, you’ll find comprehensive information about our past, present and future. Our new logo is a visual reflection of this linkage. With a nod to our history, and symbolizing a blend of tradition and progress, the clean lines reflect a path from our roots to the future we’re building. A future built around community and family. Our commitment to the founders’ values remains steadfast as we move forward, embracing change and new opportunities to serve our community.

Speaking of moving forward, embracing change and new opportunities, we are also excited to announce the launching of new Strategic Grant Initiatives. Informed by community conversations, historical grantmaking analysis, board retreats and implemented in the context of our vision, mission and values, these strategies represent our best work to honor our history, go deeper in the present and build a better future in partnership with community.

Whether you’re a long-time partner, new to our mission, or just interested in our work, we invite you to explore, connect, and join us in making a meaningful difference across the communities of central and western Maryland.
