Rural Maryland suffers from the highest unemployment in the state as well as high poverty rates. Citizens lack access to transportation and health care providers. Help us change that.
We have a simple mission: to support efforts of citizens and government meet the economic and social needs of rural Maryland; to serve as the Maryland Rural Development Council if the Rural Maryland Council ceases to function in that role; and to support the efforts of the Rural Maryland Council.
The Foundation has been instrumental in supporting RMC goals and projects. For example, when the RMC identified a lack of credit for young and beginner farmers, the RMC, with Foundation support, helped create the Maryland Agricultural Resource Based Development Corporations (MARBIDCO).
