Educational Opportunity: Diversifying Your Board

Multiple reports assessing racial diversity of nonprofit boards in the region attest to lack of racial diversity being an on-going challenge – despite a shift of values and attitudes that may support increasing racial diversity.  So, what is happening?  Why can’t nonprofit boards – despite our best intentions – recruit and keep people of color? And what can we learn from those boards that do? Join the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County in welcoming Adar Ayira from Associated Black Charities for this free Strengthening Nonprofits event.

Everybody Counts: What You Need to Know About the 2020 Census by Maryland Nonprofits

This upcoming session hosted by Maryland Nonprofits will bring together a variety of perspectives to discuss what the decennial census means for the nonprofit sector and our role in ensuring an accurate count.

January 2019 "Open House" Events

January 2019 "Open House" Events

Because we don’t have an actual office (our two employees work 100% remotely), we can’t host a typical “Open House” event to welcome you all to our space. So instead, we’re going to come to you. We’ll be hosting informal gatherings at coffee shops in each of our three main geographic areas of focus throughout the month of January. These are large chunks of time, intended to give past grantees, current grant partners, grantseekers, or any others interested in our work the opportunity to come by and meet with our Program Office, ask questions, and learn more about our work. No agendas. Nothing formal. Just a chance to meet in person and talk.

Heartly House, Inc., Mental Health Association of Frederick County, Wells House, Inc., and the Frederick County Health Department are presenting the second annual “Summit of Intersections” later this month. This one-day conference, sponsored by Precision Diagnostics, Inc., United Way of Frederick County, and Whitesell’s Pharmacy, will focus on the intersection of adverse childhood experiences, mental health disorders, sexual abuse and substance use disorders. These topic areas are ones that separate conferences are held often to address but very few seek to bring content experts together.
