Every donation you make through the MCC matters – and this rings true now perhaps more than ever.
The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is affecting all of us in varying degrees and ways – including the charities we all love and support through the MCC each year.
Thanks to your participation in the 2019 MCC, more than $2.5 million of critical funding is reaching the charities and communities that need help — right now.
The compassion you showed in the 2019 MCC is in action at this very moment. In other words, thanks to your generosity and compassion last year, you are making an incredible difference this year, when it’s needed most.
The charities you pledged to support this past fall are receiving your donations now, and your support will continue to help sustain their operations and programs throughout the rest of this year. This is one of the incredible benefits of workplace giving campaigns like the MCC. And you’ll have another opportunity to support causes you care about again when the 2020 MCC Campaign begins this fall.
The MCC Giving Guide lists eligible charities and their codes, how your donation makes an impact, giving methods, step-by-step giving instructions, frequently asked questions and answers, and more.

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.
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 every MCC donor is a winner — because 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.
