Giving by Cause

Connecting personal values to high-impact opportunities.
Field of Interest Funds allow donors to target gifts to causes important to them:  arts and culture, education and scholarships, the environment, general community improvement, health and wellness, youth, and veterans. Community Foundation of Southern Maryland provides financial support and awards grants to 501 (c)(3) nonprofits that serve the residents of Charles, St. Mary’s, and Calvert Counties.

For those who are particularly passionate about a single cause, Field of Interest Funds provide strategic, lasting support—even as needs change over time.
