Maryland Charity Campaign draws support for Benedictine
The Maryland Charity Campaign is an annual work
place giving campaign that connects state employees with causes that matter. Each fall, pledge cards and the MCC Agency Guide and Directory are distributed to all state employees and retirees as part of the statewide employee giving effort that raised more than $2.9 million last year.
As one of the participating charitable organizations, Benedictine Programs and Services offers individuals the opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities through their support.
Donations help fund Benedictine’s 18 group homes on the Eastern Shore and in Annapolis which provide critically needed, community-based living options in safe neighborhoods for 70 adults as well as resources for the Benedictine School’s day and residential education program that serves 65 students with severe disabilities from throughout the state.
The campaign runs annually from September to December with payroll deductions commencing the following January. The Agency Guide and Directory lists all participating charities with a brief description of the services they provide and information on how to contact the organization.
How it works
Pledge cards enable donors to specify their charitable organization(s) and their desired monetary contribution as well as the method in which they choose to contribute (Payroll deduction, cash, check, or charge).
The participating charities serve the citizens of Maryland, the United States, and people of other countries in a variety of ways. Donating through the Maryland Charity Campaign provides meals to the hungry, services to the disabled, funds to research disease, technology to clean the environment, and many other worthwhile causes. Without the Maryland Charity Campaign, the participating organizations would miss out on the $3.1 million raised in 2015.
