Our Impact

Building Community
Enriching Lives.


We create a Vibrant Harford County by engaging donors, providing community leadership, investing in high-impact initiatives and building an endowment for future generations.

The idea of becoming a Philanthropist can seem daunting. The Community Foundation of Harford County can help!

Being a Philanthropist starts simply by making a donation. You determine what happens with your donation, it’s completely up to you, whether your tax-deductible donation turns into scholarships, research dollars, cultural enrichment or solutions to community problems.
