This #GivingTuesday, take ACTION for Racial Equity in Maryland – Gift these Organizations with your Support.

December 1, 2020

If you are looking for ways to increase the diversity of your giving this season, Maryland Nonprofits is on board with you!  Maryland’s African American and Latino communities have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic crisis, and are coping with the impact of racism in their lives and everyday work in our communities. That is why we are inviting you to consider a GivingTuesday gift to Black and Brown Organizations.

  1. Cllctivly.org (https://cllctivly.org/) is a Black-led nonprofit that has created a platform to provide rapid no-strings-attached funding to Black-led nonprofits and Black-owned businesses in Baltimore.  Cllctivly.org is a program of Fusion Partnerships.  Click here to donate to Cllctivly.org.
  2. Maryland Latinos Unidos (mdlatinosunidos.org)  is a new Latino-led organization created as a result of COVID-19 and the urgent need to unify resources and advocate to address basic needs for the Latino and immigrant community.  Maryland Latinos Unidos is a program of Maryland Nonprofits.

Thanks to donors like you over the years, Maryland Nonprofits has been a ready resource for nonprofits throughout the unprecedented challenges of 2020.  We had the infrastructure in place to operate virtually as we assisted nonprofit organizations throughout the state in coping with the pandemic, pivoting their offices and programs, and accessing urgent resources.  Our biggest achievement, perhaps of all time, was helping advocate for including nonprofits in the Cares Act, and then helping nonprofits access the funding through the Paycheck Protection Program.  As a result, more than $500 million was brought into Maryland’s Nonprofit sector through the program.  We ourselves received the PPP, our board has been generous with their giving this year, foundation grants have been solid and membership and other programs are holding up well so far.  So, we would like to use our modest platform to uplift Black and Brown nonprofits and invite you to be part of a shift in giving that places people of color-led organizations in the center.

Thank you again for your support of Maryland Nonprofits. We hope you all are staying healthy and well during this time.
