Beneficiaries

Last year, the Foundation donated $11,000 to the City of Gaithersburg’s Dolores C. Swoyer Camp Scholarship Fund which provides registration fees for underprivileged youth to attend summer camp. Camp scholarship funds provide a summer of learning and activities for children who are unable, without assistance, to meet the financial requirements of summer camp.

The Race Committee also granted $2,500 to the Dwelling Place, Inc., a non-profit based in Gaithersburg which supports homeless families in Montgomery County, MD, in their pursuit of self-sufficiency by providing housing, education, financial and life skills, and career enhancement.

The Foundation also donated $1,000 to the Maryland Senior Olympics, a non-profit that helps support the health of Maryland seniors.

Lastly, the Foundation also donated $500 to Mercy Health Clinic, a totally free clinic serving the uninsured in Montgomery County,

The Kentlands Community Foundation is also a beneficiary. The community-based, not-for- profit and philanthropic organization rooted in Kentlands has a three-fold mission: to serve as an educational resource on the landmark new urbanist community that is Kentlands, to build community by supporting local arts and cultural programs, and to provide opportunities for volunteerism and community outreach. All programs are open to everyone, regardless of residency, and volunteers are always welcome.
