Introduction
The mission of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore is to strengthen the community by building charitable funds, maximizing benefits to donors, making effective grants, and providing leadership to address community needs.
 
As a nonprofit charitable organization, the Foundation is the largest non-governmental source of support for nonprofit organizations in the Maryland lower shore counties of Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester.

Gifts to the Community Foundation create permanent endowment funds that steadily grow in value over time and produce income for grants to local charitable nonprofit organizations.

In fiscal 2011 the Foundation made 1,011 grants totaling $3.7 million as scholarships and as grants, to nonprofit and faith-based organizations to help improve the quality of life for the citizens of this region.
