About The Foundation

Our History

For many years, civic and human services leaders in Carroll County shared a common vision of an umbrella organization that would facilitate philanthropic activities within our community. In mid-1993, a steering committee, which included James Wise, Arthur Valenzano, Calvin Seitz, Peggie Roland, Donald Hull, George Giese, William Gering, and Audrey Cimino, began the process of making the Community Foundation of Carroll County a reality.

Beginning with a gift of sixty thousand dollars from the Estate of Rosa B. Null, a Hampstead, Maryland resident, the Community Foundation has grown to 3.4 million dollars in endowments, operations funds, scholarships and funds managed for other community organizations. As your Community Foundation, we receive funds from individuals, businesses, and other community organizations whose purpose is to enhance and support the quality of life in this community. We are a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are tax deductible to the maximum amount allowable for gifts to a public charity. This allows many individuals, through gifts and bequests, to establish permanent endowment funds within the confines of one large foundation or to develop new funding ideas for the benefit of Carroll County.

Our Mission & Values

Currently, there are more than six hundred Community Foundations across America. What they all share is a common mission - to help maximize the current and long-term impact of charitable activities within their communities, while providing donors with significant financial advantages, tax savings and recognition.

It is no news to anyone that there are an overwhelming number of organizations and programs now desperately searching for funds. For people with a strong sense of community and personal commitment to make significant contributions to the community in which they live, the choices can be especially demanding. The Community Foundation of Carroll County can be the conduit for tax-advantaged charitable gifts from individuals and corporations in our community.
