Find Charities Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic

While the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has impacted people and communities at home and abroad, charities are particularly feeling the pinch. The demand for their services is off the charts, while their finances, capacity, and resources are particularly strained due to the cancelation of fundraising and partner development events. The long-term impact on nonprofits’ bottom-line will affect the capacity of many to serve their constituents in the months, and possibly years, to come.

We asked the 2020 MCC-participating charities if they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic — and if so, to describe how in 200 words or less — both now and in the future. Click here to download an alphabetical list of their responses.

Thanks to You

Every donation you make through the MCC  matters – and this rings true now perhaps more than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of us – especially the charities we all love and support through the MCC each year. The compassion you showed in the 2019 MCC is in action at this very moment, thanks to the more than $2.5 million you raised last year. Every cent has become critical funding this year.

Now you have the opportunity to renew your pledge or join us in supporting our community and neighbors by supporting one of the nearly 1,000 participating charities in the 2020 MCC.

Donating through the MCC is a simple way to spread your charitable donations over the entire year using payroll deduction.

Your support is needed now more than ever. Together we build a brighter future. After all, we are One Family One Hope #MDInThisTogether. Please give today.

At last year’s kickoff, we asked donors why they give through the MCC. Check out their short but inspiring responses in this MCC Donor Stories Playlist. Click here or the picture below to see their videos.
