PHILANTHROPY? While each year brings new opportunities, challenges and successes to the Community Foundation, an anniversary year is a chance to look back on the impact we have been able to have on the Lower Eastern Shore. This year marked our 35th anniversary and a record year of grantmaking. Anniversaries call to attention the value we bring to the region and the vision our founders had when they created CFES all those years ago – one of community philanthropy. But what is philanthropy? In its truest sense, the word philanthropy originates from the Greek word philanthropia, or “kindness, humanity, benevolence, love to mankind.” As we reflect on our founding, this origin could not be more fitting for what we embody, as our success would not be possible without the energy each of you pours into this foundation. When you’re in a position to see what happens day to day at the Foundation you see that philanthropy is propelled forward in many ways. As you watch the hard work and dedication our volunteers, donors, and staff bring to all aspects of our work, you begin to understand the thoughtful and disciplined process that guides how the Foundation, and its assets, are managed. There is a truly humbling appreciation in how staff handles each situation with a personal touch, and the pride and commitment that each of our volunteers brings to their work. Above all else, you see our community coming together in philanthropy with their gifts, gifts of financial resources, but also gifts of time and talent. We know that while we are celebrating this year, every year before has had its own hands, heads and hearts come together to create the Community Foundation we are today. We hope you enjoy this year’s annual report recognizing 35 years of impact in our region. We hope it inspires you to think about the ways, large and small, that you are and can make a difference. Most of all, we hope it reinforces all the good that the Community Foundation has allowed us to do together. Because, more than anything, philanthropy is defined by you.

In 1984 a charitable concept reached the Lower Eastern Shore that would forever change regional philanthropy, strengthen our community, and create a lasting impact.

philanthropy is about


BEGINNINGS It all started with a phone call to Bob Cook, then President of the Greater Salisbury Committee. Cook was invited to the National Conference of Community Foundations, a concept created in 1914 in Cleveland that embraced geographic-based philanthropy while supporting a variety of charitable interests. Rather than a private foundation, community foundations would pool their charitable resources and serve as a place for people to join together in philanthropy. After Cook brought back and shared the concepts he had learned about, the idea quickly picked up speed. The founding board included leaders whose names still loom large in our region today. Leading by example, Dick Henson offered a $1 million challenge that The first office space of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore was located inside One Plaza East, Salisbury, Maryland.

In the early days, the Foundation was like any fledgling nonprofit and had no paid staff. As time passed, the team grew, departments were created and services expanded. What has always remained constant is our personal commitment to the mission and dedication to meeting the needs of those we serve.

motivated the board and launched this fledging organization on the path toward success.





Eager to demonstrate impact, the Foundation made two initial grants of $1,000 each, awarded to the Life Crisis Center and Coastal Hospice. These early grants cemented our core focus of strengthening the community through grantmaking. By the early 90s, CFES was granting more than $500,000 annually and creating new endowment funds to meet a wide range of community needs. The board and staff focused on the development of new relationships and spreading the word about the value of endowment. Attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and other local professional partners became steadfast allies in fostering charitable giving and growing the Foundation’s reach. Founding members of the board of directors continued to lead by example, with Oscar Carey transferring his parents' private foundation to CFES in 1996, which significantly boosted the Foundation’s grantmaking abilities and remains the Foundation’s largest gift to date. The establishment of the Legacy Society in 1997 helped to inspire others by illustrating the benefit of planned giving and was an opportunity to celebrate deferred gifts from bequests, life insurance and other planned giving tools. Jim Almand, Chairman of the Board at the time, continued the tradition of leading through action by becoming one of the first members of the Legacy Society. 5

Perhaps nothing was more transformational for the Community Foundation than the Perdue Kresge Challenge. The Kresge Foundation, established by Samuel Kresge, founder of K-Mart, created a unique opportunity for community foundations to build “community capital.” Championed by Emilie Robinson, Virginia Layfield and Marty Neat, and anchored with a generous match of $4 million from Frank and Mitzi Perdue, this multi-phase campaign concluded with $12 million dollars raised in new endowments for 19 nonprofits over a fouryear period. Through the 2000s, the Foundation continued to benefit from the energy and expertise of a diverse and committed group of volunteers and board leadership. Each year as capacity grew, the grants, services, and resources the Foundation provided expanded as well. In 2006, the Community Foundation opened the Eastern Shore Nonprofit Support Center bringing new opportunities to area organizations and the community. By inspiring giving, the Foundation has grown to include over 700 funds, addressing needs across the charitable spectrum, while collective efforts like Giving Tuesday and the Women’s Fund continue to demonstrate that giving can bring a community together.

philanthropy is about



35 Y E A R S Today, the Community Foundation is the single largest grant maker on the Lower Eastern Shore making an excess of $6 million dollars in grants each year. Through the generosity of 9,000+ donors, $84 million dollars has been granted. These gifts ensure critical funding for nonprofits, scholarships for students, and guidance for donors and advisors to carry out charitable wishes and preserve philanthropic intent. In the coming decades The Community Foundation will continue to build nonprofit

capacity, invest in future generations, and celebrate the legacies of those who paved the way. The groundwork laid with every gift will strengthen the Lower Eastern Shore, while remaining steadfast to the core values of our founders. We will continue to lead by example, respond to community needs, and collaborate to strengthen our community. Each new chapter of our story begins when a compassionate, caring person has an idea -- and, it often still starts with a phone call.

How will you turn inspiration into action?


Ignite the For 2019 CFES created the SPARK campaign, matching up to $35,000 in funds to each of the education foundations on the Lower Eastern Shore. By partnering with local education foundations, we invest in the future of our community – our kids!

$105,000 + $105,000 = $210,000

Combined fundraised by education foundations for local education and area students! Combined match By The Community Foundation

In conjunction with the Endow Maryland Tax Credit program CFES made a $1:$1 match for every eligible gift received for a qualified Field of Interest or Community Needs Fund, up to $70,000. By creating a match, donors were able to provide an even bigger impact to local charitable causes!

How You Give





philanthropy is about



Within a community there are needs large and small that make the place we call home better for everyone. Community foundations are unique in our ability to make an impact in so many diverse areas of community need. A community foundation is made by the community, for the community and we take this responsibility seriously. We continually gather information about the most pressing local needs. We study the many local organizations and programs working to enhance our communities. We seek ideas that are making a difference. We

stay alert to emerging issues and foster giving and growth in our community. While these needs may change over time, one thing that will never change is our commitment to being a part of what’s good in our region. After school programs, therapy for veterans, arts and cultural programs, environmental education, first responder support, food security for our friends and neighbors, literacy, animal welfare, and the list goes on, because you care, and these causes matter to you.

GRANT MAKING Our grants expand horizons, transform lives, and meet challenges across the charitable spectrum. With a diverse network of local nonprofits, our annual grant making possibilities are endless. The profound and lasting impact of these grants will improve the quality of life for all citizens on the Lower Eastern Shore.

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 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.










For a complete list of our grant recipients please visit CFES.org

OUR GRANT PROCESS Our multi-stage grant process allows us to respond to worthwhile projects that target pressing needs in our region. We work diligently to ensure that funding is distributed to qualified organizations that will create lasting impact, and ensure that donor dollars are used effectively and efficiently.

IT STARTS WITH A CAUSE As a foundation created by the community, for the community, we serve an ever expanding and diverse group of organizations. While each grant is unique, they all share one common factor - a cause that is important.

GET CONNECTED Submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to tell CFES about a need or a project and ask for funding, OR respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP) published by CFES informing potential applicants of open grant opportunities that might suit their needs.

APPLICATION Prospective grantees find or are directed to the CFES grant program that best fits their need and eligibility. Through our e-Grants platform, nonprofits can manage their grant applications from start to finish with technical support from our team.

REVIEW CFES carefully verifies an organization’s nonprofit status. Each application is reviewed by staff to ensure that funds will be used for charitable purposes and that the funding criteria has been met. Depending on the specific request, applications are then evaluated by staff and volunteer grant committees who conduct site visits, share feedback, and make funding recommendations.

APPROVAL The last step of the grant application process is approval by the Community Foundation Board of Directors. Applicants are notified of approval.






Lasting community outcomes require great planning and hard work. As funders, it is our duty to ensure grantees are financially healthy and have long term fundraising abilities that can support their missions. In 2018 a pilot of the Jumpstart program was launched by The Community Foundation, the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore and Network for Good. This program provides fundraising assistance, including coaching, technology, and rightsized development planning to the participating nonprofits.

We provide millions of dollars in grants each year to local nonprofits. By addressing unmet charitable needs and unique program opportunities, we turn inspiration into action in our local community. Through our online e-Grants portal nonprofits can manage their grants from start to finish.

MEETING & CONFERENCE ROOM USE Local nonprofits may reserve our large or small conference rooms to host meetings, seminars, or conferences free of charge. Our space holds up to 40 people and offers audio/ visual capabilities.

NONPROFIT SCHOLARSHIPS Scholarships covering tuition and fees are available for select courses to nonprofit staff and volunteers in partnership with Wor-Wic Community College.

EVENTS & TRAINING SEMINARS Learn, train, and grow with us! We offer numerous free and low-cost events year round for individuals and organizations.

SUPPORT & RESOURCES We provide tools such as online template and policy libraries, research access, how-to guides, and grant resources. We offer access to the Foundation Directory Online, an online database of grantmakers and search tools. Our in-house library contains 250+ publications, a work table, computer, and wifi access. Resources are available free of charge.

RESEARCH & REPORTING CFES seeks to understand and document the needs, impact, and growth of area nonprofits. Through research and reporting, we provide tangible data to advance nonprofit missions and growth.

The Christian Shelter Endowment Fund Supporting our local nonprofits has always been important in my life, and partnering with the Community Foundation in my charitable endeavors has been a very good fit. The Christian Shelter provides for those in our community with the greatest needs, and through this fund I can provide annual financial assistance to benefit their mission.

The Kacie & Kalie Sprankle Scholarship Mardela High School provided us with educational opportunities, leadership experiences, and multi-sport athletic competitions that spanned from local to state levels. We decided to pay it forward by establishing a scholarship benefiting a deserving senior at Mardela High School. We were always taught the importance of giving back and CFES helped make the process easy yet rewarding.

Anna Downing Memorial Fund My Aunt Anna never married, so she did not have a family to carry on her legacy. She loved all of her nieces and nephews very much and included us in her will. I decided to use some of her bequest to establish a fund that would carry on her name and memory for generations to come.

Billy Wayne Truitt Memorial Scholarship After my husband’s passing, a student told me “Mr. Truitt not only taught us HVAC, he taught us about life.” I wanted a permanent legacy for the man who impacted his students in such a positive way, every day. By creating a scholarship in his memory, Billy will continue to make a difference in the lives of students.

Women’s Fund THE

Since 2011, The Women’s Fund at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore has grown to more than 280 members and has granted over $227,000 to area nonprofits. By serving on the Women’s Fund grants committee, members have an opportunity to see first hand what needs exist in our community and identify ways their fund can make a difference.

Empowering Women, Inspiring Girls

The Women’s Fund of the Eastern Shore was created through the power of collective philanthropy. Members work together to help change the lives of local women and girls. By pooling financial resources, members increase the impact of local programs serving girls in foster care, mothers in crisis, young women seeking job-readiness or leadership skills, and others who need a hand-up to be stronger, more self-sufficient forces for positive change in our community.

CFES is a trusted investment partner for nonprofit agencies throughout the region. By establishing an endowment, nonprofit organizations create a source of future income with lower fees than other investment options. Since the fund is part of the CFES portfolio, the organization benefits from our highly diversified and strategic approach. In our first year, CFES provided grants to Coastal Hospice and Life Crisis Center - just two awards. Thirty five years later more than 532 organizations receive grants, but these first two organizations remain steadfast partners. Through their agency funds, these organizations have demonstrated a commitment to long-range financial planning and taken advantage of the Community Foundation’s financial management, administrative resources, and technical support.

COMMUNITIES The Impact of the Nonprofit Sector on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore

The Lower Shore Nonprofit Economic and Social Impact Study was convened in 2018 to explore and highlight the significant role nonprofits play in the region’s economy and quality of life. This first-ever study provides a detailed look at the nonprofit sector in four counties on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland: Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester.

The nonprofit sector is a vital part of the Lower Shore’s economic and social environment. It provides a myriad of services to the community in health care, human services, education, arts and culture, and more. Nonprofits provide thousands of jobs, rally countless volunteers, and generate millions of dollars for the local economy. Each charitable dollar donated directly and indirectly reaches more than 84,000 individuals and families in the region. The integral role of local nonprofits has an astounding ripple effect on the qualityof-life of Lower Shore families and their future generations.

Strengthening Communities Report partners: Heather Mahler, Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore; Greg Padgham, Tri County Council; Mike Dunn, Greater Salisbury Committee; Erica Joseph, Community Foundation; Bill Chambers, Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce; Kathryn Gordon, Worcester County Economic Development; Sarah Guy, BEACON at Salisbury University; Heather Iliff, Maryland Nonprofits; Pam Gregory, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore.

Nonprofits on the Lower Eastern Shore have a total economic impact of over $695 million annually.

Each charitable dollar donated directly and indirectly reaches more than 84,000 individuals and families in the region.

Approximately 1 in 3 Lower Shore neighbors are served directly and indirectly by local nonprofits.

The nonprofit sector supports over 9,200 jobs on the Lower Eastern Shore.

Lower Shore nonprofits contributed over 14% of the region’s total wages.

Nonprofit employment on the Lower Shore grew 29% between 2006 & 2017.

P L A N N I N G FO R T H E F U T U R E C O R P O R AT E PHILANTHROPY Since our founding, the Community Foundation has been supported by the generosity, vision, expertise and commitment of our local corporate community. Throughout our region, charitable causes depend on the support of people who care, but also businesses that recognize the value of investing in our community. We are proud to collaborate with the philanthropic endeavors of

2019 Professional Partners Conference

many local businesses to maximize their impact through our flexible giving options. While more than 31 businesses hold funds at the Foundation, we also benefit from the skill and perspective shared by business leaders who serve on our board and committees to help carry out the day to day work of CFES. Like many nonprofits, we benefit annually from financial contributions and in-kind support, ensuring our continued success. Together, the Community Foundation and area businesses create full-circle partnerships that give back to our local communities and improve the region we call home.

PROFESSIONAL ADVISORS Attorneys, CPAs, financial planners, trust officers, and other professionals are valued partners in charitable giving. Together we can develop client-focused giving strategies that meet specific financial goals and philanthropic interests. Maximum Tax Benefits: As a tax-exempt public charity, CFES offers giving solutions that maximize benefits to donors. ​​Lasting Legacy: The impact of a charitable gift will grow over time. Under the stewardship of CFES, a gift supports philanthropic priorities forever. ​Personalized Recognition: A CFES fund can bear the donor’s name or that of family, or a loved one. Or, if anonymity is preferred, we can ensure that too. Flexibility: CFES is able to process gifts of marketable securities, closely held stock, retirement funds, real estate, and more. Donors can give the gift outright or structure it to produce a lifetime of income. ​​Local Insight: We are your feet on the street. CFES staff members frequently visit local nonprofits and participate in community conversations. We are happy to share our

knowledge and experience.

FRANCES H. OLSEN MEMORIAL FUND Frances provided guidance in her will to create this fund to benefit nonprofit organizations in and around central and southern Worcester County. Frances lived most of her 100 years on a small farm near Box Iron in Worcester County. Originally from Hamburg, Germany, she was rescued by her late husband, Thomas S. Olsen, a U.S. Merchant Marine Captain, after WWII. A proud American, she desired that her estate benefit her adopted community in Worcester County.

MATT O’HARE MEMORIAL FUND Matt O’Hare, the former Athletic Director for Worcester County/ Preparatory School, was passionate about the athletic program and theater arts program. He took every opportunity to support as many games and performances as possible. His son, Dan, along with family & friends, established this fund to provide an annual scholarship to a Worcester Preparatory School student who excels in Performing Arts and Athletics.



A memorial fund provides an opportunity for friends and family to commemorate the life of a loved one through the creation of a new fund or by making gifts to an existing fund. The knowledge that a loved one’s legacy will live on and have a permanent impact in the community can provide comfort during a difficult time. Inspiring philanthropy in others is a never ending legacy.

ST. PHILIP’S CEMETERY FUND The St. Philip’s Cemetery Fund was created to honor the life of James Andrew “Andy” Phillips, Jr. Andy was a lifetime member of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Quantico. He was born and raised in Salisbury and is remembered as an inventor, successful local business owner, and loving family man. Gifts made to his memorial fund will be used to maintain the cemetery.

ROLAND E. “FISH” POWELL MEMORIAL FUND Fish Powell was born and raised in Ocean City. His legacy of service included 65 years as an active member of the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company – nine as Chief, City Council President, Worcester County Commissioner, and Mayor. He is remembered for his laid-back nature and sense of humor and this memorial fund, created by his family and friends, will honor him and his lifetime of commitment to community.

JOSH & TOMMY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP The Josh & Tommy Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the lives of fallen officers PFC Joshua Dale Adickes & Officer Thomas James Geoghegan, Jr. With gifts from friends and family, this fund will support scholarships for graduates of the OCPD seasonal police academy who are pursuing a college degree in Criminal Justice, Emergency Management, or any other Public Safety degree. 29
