UMD Faculty & Staff Community Campaign

November 2, 2016

It is that time of the year when we all have the opportunity to help out thousands of fellow citizens, animals and the environment in the state of Maryland who are going through tough times. 

Your contributions will help them with living conditions, with their mental , physical and environmental state. This year, the Faculty/Staff Campaign is focusing on four essential Maryland charities that help feed families, protect children, promote animal welfare and save the bay where terrapins roam:

    *    Maryland Food Bank - EIN 52-1135690

    *    CASA/Prince George's County -  EIN 52-1772617

    *    SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George's County - EIN 52-1047460

    *    Chesapeake Bay Foundation - EIN 52-6065757
