You Make the Difference

CFAAC's mission is to inspire and promote giving in Anne Arundel County by connecting people who care with causes that matter. Together with our donors we are helping to pave the paths for a brighter, healthier future by building strong children, families and communities. We believe in the benefit and impact that community foundations have on the local economy and the quality of life for future generations.


Opening a fund at CFAAC is the first step in creating your own legacy to benefit the causes you care about.

Simplify Your Giving

With a single gift to CFAAC you can establish a fund that allows you to give to the causes you care about most. It’s like having your own private family foundation, only without the hassle and expense.

Consult with Experts

CFAAC distributes over $2.3 million dollars in grants each year to a variety of nonprofit organizations. We monitor all areas of community need including human services, education, the environment, healthcare, the arts, and economic development.

Choose Your Timing

Your gift to CFAAC, a 501(c)(3) organization, qualifies for an immediate tax deduction, allowing you to make a gift when it’s most financially beneficial to you. You can add to the fund at any time and in any amount.

Choose Your Nonprofits

Through your fund, you may recommend grants to any qualified U.S. nonprofit organization. Grants to international organizations are considered on a case-by-case basis. CFAAC staff researches each nonprofit you would like to support to ensure it is in good standing with regulators and then issues the check from your fund. And, at your request, we can make inquiries on your behalf while protecting your anonymity.
