Branching Out Society

Most nonprofit organizations find operating funds the most difficult to procure. Typically, donors would rather give to more tangible programs or capital projects, overlooking the day-to-day expenses that organizations like the Community Foundation incur. At the Community Foundation, we pay close attention to fiscal responsibility, but overhead costs continue to pose a challenge. With the help of our Branching Out Society, we can continue meeting the charitable interests of our donors, and work to encourage philanthropy in Washington County.

Members of our Branching Out Society make a gift of at least $200 annually to support our operating expenses. If you would you like to become a part of our Branching Out Society, you can donate online or send your donation to Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc., 33 W. Franklin Street, Suite 203, Hagerstown, MD 21740.
