As the new year begins, we recognize and thank our 2020 Grant Recipients (as listed below) for their work this past year. These fifteen Mid-Shore non-profits received grants of varying amounts, totaling $56,513, for programs to benefit local women and girls.

The Women & Girls Fund‘s ability to make annual grants is due to the enormous community support we receive. Since 2002, we have built an endowment at the Mid-Shore Community Foundation of over $1,000,000 and we continue to grow. This year’s record-breaking annual appeal reflects the generosity of Mid-Shore residents who understand that non-profits, like our grant recipients, make a significant difference in our region. Thank you to all of our Donors! Your generosity has helped so many.
“Using the power of pooled resources to improve the lives of women and girls in the Mid-Shore.”
Watch this space next month for our new 2021 recognition series -“Showing Up”- that will share stories of people who have shown up in big and small ways to help others!
