Thank you 2020 MCC donors!

Thanks to the generosity of more than 6,900 Maryland employees and retirees, we raised more than $2.1 million through the 2020 MCC for nearly 1,000 worthy charities! Thanks to you, we surpassed our 2020 goal of $2 million goal. Those contributions have made, and are making, a collective, lasting impact in communities across the State and the wider world. We are grateful. Together, we are building a brighter future.

About the Maryland Charity Campaign

Hear from Governor Hogan, Lt. Governor Rutherford, Secretary Wobensmith, and our 2020 MCC Vice Chairs Director Tung and Special Secretary Rhee, as they discuss why a donation of any amount – even $1 a paycheck – makes a lasting difference. This video reminds us that we are a giant family, connected by hope. We mean it when we say we are One Hope One Family #MDInThisTogether.

We are immensely grateful to the Department of Juvenile Services‘ Office of Communications and Special Projects for creating our Campaign video. Check out their DJS-TV episode about the 2020 MCC!

2020 Prize Winners

All employees & retirees who pledged or donated to causes they love through the 2020 MCC were entered into random drawings throughout the CampaignTheir names stayed in the running until either they won or the Campaign ended on New Year’s Eve. (Read additional details in our Terms and Conditions here.)

Thank you to everyone who participated, and congratulations to all of the prize drawing winners! Meet two of them: Two winners of the 2020 MCC prize drawings

While not every donor won last year, if you talk to any one of our participating charities or their beneficiaries, they will tell you unequivocally that, in fact, the opposite is true; each MCC donor did win. Your collective donation dollars provide causes with vital funding that sustains their important missions.
