Information for Charities

2022 Campaign Details

The Office of the Secretary of State and America’s Charities, our 2022 Operating Agency, are busy planning this year’s Campaign. As details unfold they will be posted on this website, but here are some important early specifics to jot down:

  • Campaign Dates: October 3-December 12, 2022. The virtual kickoff is on October 3.
  • Goal: $2 Million
  • Your MCC Charity Code: is your Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Website: https://mcc.maryland.gov/
  • The 2022 Campaign Theme: Mountain to Shore – Maryland Strong!
  • Campaign Format: Two years ago, the MCC became virtual. We will have a virtual Campaign again this year. More details to come soon.
  • Leadership:
    • The Campaign is administered by the Office of the Secretary of State.
    • Governor Hogan chairs and Lt. Governor Rutherford co-chairs the Campaign.
    • The 2022 MCC Vice Chairs, appointed by Governor Hogan, are: 
      • Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, Secretary Department of Natural Resources
      • Robert L. Green, Secretary, Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services
    • America’s Charities is MCC’s Operating Agency, helping develop and facilitate the MCC, including charity disbursement. America’s Charities is a nonprofit which inspires employees and organizations to support each other and the causes they care about.
    • Hundreds of employees across the State go above and beyond their day-to-day jobs to advocate for the MCC and ensure each employee is invited to give. The MCC would not be successful without Loaned Executives, Campus Champions, and Coordinators
