Our Community Foundation A
s leaders, grant makers, and stewards of philanthropy, the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore serves the common good of the Lower Eastern Shore. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit with an inspiring history of fostering charitable endeavors, and have provided more than $60 million in grants and scholarships to the local community since 1984. We collaborate with individuals, families, and businesses to match their charitable interests with community needs and strengthen local nonprofits through grants and resources. We are devoted to improving our regional community and believe in people helping one another to provide positive impact.
the power oF our coMMunity FoundAtion donors Anyone with heart and passion can give. Every gift, be it a one-time gift to an existing fund, the creation of your own fund, or a legacy gift, is a valuable contribution to our local community.
collective GivinG As partners, we can make a bigger community impact when we pool our charitable gifts. At CFES we build philanthropy together.
stewArdship We carefully steward gifts to the community through sound investment and effective grantmaking to strengthen area nonprofits. We have been trusted leaders in philanthropy since 1984.
The Community Foundationâ€™s Annual Report allows us to look back on our accomplishments as we continue connecting people who care with causes that matter. Throughout the year, our donors give generously, sharing their time, talent, and finances to create a brighter tomorrow for the Lower Shore. Together we pool our resources, share our knowledge, and expand our relationships. We know philanthropy is not about the size of the gift, but rather the people who give of themselves to improve the community we share. By working for today, planning for tomorrow, and providing an opportunity for everyoneâ€™s inner philanthropist to shine, we are planting seeds for a more promising future. Our commonly shared value of charitable giving is what makes the Community Foundation unique, and allows us to create solutions for the common good of our region. On behalf of the Community Foundation, thank you for caring. You are creating a stronger, more vibrant community.
Our impact is local. We serve the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland and work to protect, nurture, and grow our communities for future generations.

Annual Grant Making
The 2016 fiscal year marked a record number of charitable grants made by the Foundation, with $5.4 million creating 1,526 grants. The profound and lasting impact of these grants will improve the quality of life for all citizens in the Lower Shore region.
Hosted annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is an online giving event where charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Our grants expand horizons, develop positive change, and create legacies that live beyond a lifetime. With a network of 400+ local nonprofits, our annual grant making possibilities are endless.
Through the Community Foundation’s campaign, nonprofits are provided the opportunity to inspire the community to support their missions and gain exposure with donors. CFES provides nonprofits the donation platform, expertise, and resources needed to have a successful online charitable campaign during the holiday season.
Our mission, while simple, would not be possible without the generosity, passion, and kindness of our donors. Thanks to you, we have been able to steadily grow our impact year after year. We are excited for 2017. With your ongoing support, we will continue to set our sights higher, dream larger, and work harder, as we continue growing our grant making with worthy causes that matter to you.
December 1, 2015 marked the Community Foundation’s first annual Giving Tuesday campaign dubbed “The Shore Gives More.” In our first year the event debuted for Worcester County nonprofits, with expansion plans for 2016. With 26 nonprofits participating, Giving Tuesday attracted 75 new donors for these organizations. 7
Friends of the Foundation We are grateful for the support of the following individuals, families, businesses, and community organizations for their generous contributions. Gifts of time and talent, as well as financial gifts, enable the Foundation to increase its capacity and ensure we provide superior service, year after year.

This new fund will help provide annual support to nonprofit programs throughout the lower Eastern Shore. Pictured: Erica Joseph and Doug Naarup.

In Memory Of
Sue Morris was a true friend to the Community Foundation. In three decades as a director and volunteer, she made her own mark on the Foundation’s history and future with her extraordinary dedication. Her legacy continues today. Though a quiet philanthropist, Sue was incredibly generous. She gave freely of her time as well as her talents and resources. She was a ready volunteer on many Foundation committees and regularly volunteered for the less glamorous chores required at a fledgling nonprofit. In the early days, when directors were pressed to help with mailings, Sue would show up to fold, stuff and stamp. She did so with the same enthusiasm and energy she gave to her leadership roles. Sue established funds to support her favorite causes – family, faith, and community – and was a founding member of The Legacy Society. Her leadership by example was, and remains, an inspiration to many. The Foundation joins Sue’s family and friends in remembering the life of this true humanitarian and her commitment to enriching the lives of others. 23

Partners with Passion The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation established a Nonprofit Partner Fund with CFES in 2016. The $80,000 investment will create an endowment to provide for future civic endeavors, as well as provide an immediate source of support for the SACCF. At the Ilia Fehrer Nature Preserve outside of Berlin, Maryland, Stephen Decatur students plant trees through the 10 Days to the Bay program created by Maryland Coastal Bays Program. The preservation effort aims to restore natural habitats and eventually open to the public as a nature park. The Assateague Coastal Trust (ACT) Coast Kids Summer Enrichment Program teaches kids topics such as ecology, colonial history, edible wild plants, and nature art projects. The 2016 camp included a visit to Furnace Town for campers to learn about archeology. CFES grants provided scholarships. At the Art League of Ocean City, CFES board member Carolyn Johnston and CFES staff Heather Trader, BJ Summers, and Victoria Kent created bowls for the Empty Bowl Project. The project benefited both Diakonia and the Art League through a dinner where the bowls were then purchased. 27
