A Maryland state tax credit called “Endow Maryland” rewards donors who help build permanent charitable funds for local communities across the state.  

Endow Maryland offers tax credits, for gifts of at least $500 to endowed funds at qualified community foundations in Maryland. The credit is 25% of the value of the donation and taxpayers may claim a maximum of $12,500 in Endow Maryland Tax Credits per year.  The tax credits have been set aside by the Maryland Legislature and are offered to donors on a first-come, first-served basis.  

Here at the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, businesses and individuals who donate $500 or more to endowed funds will be eligible for the tax credit.  Endowed funds at the Mid-Shore Community Foundation include: The Founders' Fund, The Operating Endowment Fund, The Fund for Caroline County, The Fund for Dorchester County, The Fund for Kent County, The Fund for Queen Anne’s County and The Fund for Talbot County.  For additional information contact Michael Morris at (410) 820-8175 x 107 or mmorris@mscf.org.
