The Mid-Shore Community Foundation connects private resources with public needs in order to enhance the quality of life throughout the Mid-Shore Region of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne's and Talbot Counties.
The Mid-Shore Community Foundation was established in 1992 with a $236,000 bequest from Colonel and Mrs. Edgar Linthicum to the United Fund of Talbot County. Recognizing the need for a community foundation to serve the Mid-Shore Region, the Directors of the United Fund of Talbot County voted to use the Linthicum Bequest to create the Mid-Shore Community Foundation.
The Foundation is located in the historic Bullitt House in Easton, Maryland. In 2002, Mr. & Mrs. Nicholas Brady, Mr. & Mrs. A. James Clark and Mr. & Mrs. William Hunter donated the Bullitt House to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation so that this historic residence would provide a permanent home for the Foundation. The additional space in the Bullitt House is leased to nonprofit organizations.
