Why Do People Give Through the MCC? Listen To Their Stories!

At a 2019 MCC Kickoff, we asked donors why they give through the MCC. We then compiled their short and inspiring video responses into the 2019 MCC Donor Stories Playlist. Click here or the picture below to see their videos.

2019 MCC Donor Stories

And there’s SO MUCH MORE! Click here or the button below to view some of the many activities happening across the State in support of the MCC. See for yourself how wildly creative (and generous) Maryland Employees and Retirees are–all in the name of giving back! Spoiler alert: You will hear an original tune sung by none other than Kenneth Holt of the Department of Housing and Community Development and 2019 MCC Vice Chair Ellington Churchill, Jr., of the Department of General Services! Also…baby sharks. (No, that’s not a typo.)

2019 MCC Weekly Donor Drawings and Prize Winners

The 2019 MCC has ended, but our gratitude never will. Thank you to everyone who donated or pledged. Ask charities or the beneficiaries of those charities’ services and programs, and they will tell you unequivocally that each and every MCC donor is a winner — because MCC donors have supported causes that benefit thousands of people, communities, and ecosystems across Maryland and the wider world. However, we had other winners as well. As part of our MCC program, each donor was entered into a weekly prize drawing, from the date of the charitable contribution until the Campaign closed on December 31, 2019. Each week, names were randomly chosen. See the list of winners below, and read our Terms and Conditions here for additional details. Please note: We list each winner’s department, but first and last names only when granted permission.
