We envision a Frederick where all individuals discover their power to make a difference and are equipped to be active, engaged citizens.
Your involvement is our most powerful resource. We know far too well that to create change - meaningful, lasting, transformative change - having you by our side is the only way we’re going to achieve it. Whether it’s by giving your time, money, or talents, there are many ways you can help us prepare kids to graduate ready to succeed, help families leave poverty behind, make quality health care accessible, and ensure safe places to call home.
DOING GOOD IS GOOD FOR YOU!
