The Rural Maryland Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was created in 2001 to support the efforts of the Rural Maryland Council, our federally recognized State Rural Development Council under the USDA. As 2018 comes to a close, we want to celebrate both our accomplishments over the last year and ask you to help further support
our work and our rural Maryland communities.

During the last year, the Foundation helped the Council
to successfully:
• Complete the Transfer of Wealth Study and finalize the
Rural Maryland Philanthropic Development Report

• Begin filming Rural Aspirations Version 2.0; and,

• Provide a biannual scholarship for the LEAD Maryland
Foundation Fellowship Program.

There are two ways you can help the Foundation
continue its work into 2019:
Renew your organization’s membership with the Rural
Maryland Foundation
 online or by mail. 
Membership dues have not increased for several years
and we are maintaining current membership levels.

Enclose a personal contribution to the Rural Maryland
Foundation online or by mail
. Your contribution is fully tax deductible and
helps rural Maryland at the same time.

The Rural Maryland Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life in our rural communities by supporting the Rural Maryland Council.
