Giving Options

Giving can take many forms, and we offer a variety of ways to help you make charitable gifts.


Monocacy Valley Montessori Public Charter School

Students at Monocacy Valley Montessori Public Charter School participated in urban gardening activities with the help of an FY2019 grant from The Franklin and Bess Gladhill Fund for Agriculture Education. They studied soil chemisty, grew seedlings, watched root systems develop and learned to plant.
