Meet the Causes You Supported in 2021
All of the more than 1,000 charities that participated in the 2021 Campaign are working toward a better world; each organization goes about it uniquely. Without your support, none of it is possible.
Thank you for making the MCC your #GivingTuesday donation destination!
We asked charities that participated in the 2021 MCC to describe, in 150 words or less, their COVID-19 response efforts. Click here to see what they said. Note: Pledges made during the 2021 MCC will be disbursed to charities in 2022.
About the Maryland Charity Campaign
The MCC is more than a charitable giving campaign – it’s the collective effort of thousands of individuals who give back and inspire hope in communities near and far. In our 2021 Campaign video, you’ll hear from Governor Hogan, Lt. Governor Rutherford, Secretary Wobensmith, and our 2021 MCC Vice Chairs Director Tung and Special Secretary Rhee, about why the MCC is important, discover details about the causes you supported, and learn how your donations and pledges sustain their important endeavors.
We are immensely grateful to the Department of Juvenile Services‘ Office of Communications and Special Projects for creating our Campaign video!
Watch the MCC Kickoff
On October 5, 2021, we launched the MCC with a virtual kickoff during which Campaign leaders discussed what’s new, debuted our new video, and explained why and how the MCC helps you help others. Thank you to the Campaign principals who spoke during the kickoff and the more than 300 people who joined us on Google Meet and Facebook. Click to view the recording, which is also on YouTube.
