Nothing stops philanthropy, not even a pandemic
Please join The Community Foundation of Frederick County on Nov. 19 at 3 p.m. for the premiere of #NothingStopsPhilanthropy, a short and exciting video about how we, together, made great things happen in Frederick County in fiscal year 2020.
We can’t get together in person this year to celebrate all of the accomplishments, so we are bringing the 34th Annual Report to the Community to you via video. Thanks to the generous support from our community, we continued our important work serving Frederick County during a year that was unlike any other.
Throughout FY2020, the Community Foundation raised money for The Forever Frederick County Fund, our unrestricted endowment that will support our community’s most pressing situations as they arise. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Community Foundation responded immediately by providing emergency grant funding to nonprofits that were on the front lines helping people cope with the loss of employment, housing, childcare, and much more. Through generous donors who trust our abilities, the Community Foundation was nimble and responsive to an unpredicted and sudden situation that affected every single person in some way.
