New funds to help South­ern Mary­land non­prof­its grow

The Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion of South­ern Mary­land an­nounced the cre­ation of four new Seedling Funds by lo­cal donors to sup­port the causes and in­sti­tu­tions they care about in their com­mu­ni­ties. The four funds are:

• St. John’s School Schol­ar­ship Fund: A des­ig­nated en­dow­ment fund es­tab­lished by Mike and Bar­bara Thomp­son of Hol­ly­wood to pro­vide schol­ar­ships for stu­dents at­tend­ing St. John’s School now and for­ever. The fund will sup­port stu­dents’ tu­ition and fees based on fi­nan­cial need to be al­lo­cated at the dis­cre­tion of the school prin­ci­pal.

• Ge­orge Martin Con­nelly Jr. Fi­nan­cial and So­cial Equal­ity Fund: A donor-ad­vised fund that sup­ports pro­grams to end part­ner/do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, cre­ate fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy pro­grams and outreach, as­sist the

re­gion’s LGBTQ pop­u­la­tion af­fected by home­less­ness, and re­lated donor in­ter­ests.

• Elaine’s Gift Fund: A non-en­dowed fund es­tab­lished in memor y of Elaine Fa­gan that pro­vides col­lege schol­ar­ships to the chil­dren of sin­gle par­ents.

• Leonard Hall Ju­nior Naval Academy Fund: An en­dow­ment fund es­tab­lished to sup­port scholar- ships, op­er­at­ing ex­penses, and mis­sion-ori­ented pro­grams at the Leonard­town academy.

Un­like other types of char­i­ta­ble gift funds that re­quire a min­i­mum up­front con­tri­bu­tion, Seedling Funds can be opened with lit­tle or no ini­tial con­tri­bu­tion and grad­u­ally added to over time. When the tax-de­ductible con­tri­bu­tions to the fund reach $5,000, the donor may then di­rect the foun­da­tion to be­gin pay­ing out funds to the or­ga­ni­za­tions and causes they have des­ig­nated, or al­low the foun­da­tion to al­lo­cate the funds as it sees fit.

Seedling Funds can be used to pro­vide grants and schol­ar­ships for 501c3 non­prof­its, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, and gov­ern­men­tal agen­cies. They may be en­dowed — that is, per­pet­ual funds that award grants an­nu­ally — or non-en­dowed — that is, grants that are given through­out the year.

For more in­for­ma­tion on how to open a Seedling Fund to sup­port a char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion in the com­mu­nity, con­tact Gretchen Hard­man at 240-670-4483, or gretchen@cf­somd.org.
