State Tax Credit
The Endow Maryland state tax credit will reward donors who help build permanent charitable funds for local communities across the state and right here on the Lower Eastern Shore. Since 2015, Endow Maryland has offered a tax credit for gifts to qualified endowment funds at Maryland community foundations.
Your Community Foundation will maximize the impact of the Endow Maryland tax credit by focusing on those funds which support the most urgent needs in the community and provide maximum flexibility over time.
You may qualify for a 25% tax credit on your Maryland state tax return one of two ways. Community Needs Funds and Field of Interest Funds are eligible for the tax credit.
Option 1: Make a gift of at least $500 to a qualifying fund.
Option 2: Establish a new endowed qualifying fund with a $10,000 gift at CFES
