Building Community
Enriching Lives.


CORNERSTONE cor•ner•stone/noun

A stone that forms the base of a corner of a building, joining two walls, thus determining the position of the entire structure.

Building a healthy and vital community – where every person, family, and business in Harford County can thrive and succeed – is important to all of us. That’s why the Community Foundation of Harford County is asking business leaders across the community to support our important work by joining the Cornerstone Society.

For a multi-year gift of $15,000 ($5,000 annually for three years), local business leaders can provide the vital financial support of the mission of the Community Foundation. Through this partnership and the commitment of neighbors and colleagues, we are positioned to grow the Community Foundation to serve people and programs throughout the county for many years to come.

With businesses giving and joining the Cornerstone Society, it will allow CFHC to build philanthropy by building permanent endowments to meet the emerging needs in Harford County. This legacy of giving helps the Community Foundation make a significant difference in the quality of life for local individuals and families through our nonprofit partners that serve our community.

Joining the Cornerstone Society means you join like-minded leaders and philanthropists through a hands-on approach to meet the needs of Harford County. You join others supporting the mission of CFHC:
