Mid-Shore Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that helps individuals, families, businesses, private foundations and others accomplish their charitable giving objectives.
The Mid-Shore Community Foundation was established on December 8, 1992 by
The United Fund of Talbot County.
United Fund had inherited $236,000 from Col. Edgar Linthicum and his wife Catherine. The funds were to be used "for the benefit, aid and assistance of the most worthy cases, in Talbot County, either charitable institutions or needy and deserving residents." Recognizing the need for an organziation to manage charitable endowments, the United Fund Directors voted to use the Linthicum bequest as founding gift to the Foundation.
In 2002, the Bullitt House was generously donated to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation by Mr. & Mrs. Nicholas Brady, Mr. & Mrs. A. James Clark and
Mr. & Mrs. William Hunter.
The Foundation is still located in the Bullitt House and the additional rooms/floors are leased to nonprofit organizations.
