The Bullitt House, Circa 1801

The Foundation is housed in the historic Bullitt House at 102 East Dover Street, Easton, Maryland. Through remarkable generosity, the Bullitt House was donated to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation to ensure a permanent home for the Foundation and to serve as the focal point for philanthropy and charitable programs in the Mid-Shore Region.

Together, the work of the Foundation and the extraordinary support of our donors have created a strong and lasting resource for the Mid-Shore Community.
