2017 Maryland Charity Campaign
The Maryland Charity Campaign is now closed. We thank everyone who donated their time and money toward the campaign.
The University raised $29,047.54 and had a 12% participation rate.
The Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC) is an annual campaign which gives Maryland State Government employees the opportunity to donate directly to their favorite charities. This year's campaign is a perfect way to Pledge to Make a Difference to our neighbors across the State who are struggling.
Over 900 non-profit charities have qualified to participate in the campaign and each of these charities has mission critical needs.
UB’s goal is to raise a minimum of $37,300 with an institutional participation rate of 25%. You can search for your favorite charity and make your tax-deductible donation ONLINE by visiting www.mcc.maryland.gov. Just click the red box that says PLEDGE NOW.
Did you know that donating $1 per pay period (or $26 a year) can provide:
- 12 individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities with transportation
- 1 hour of crisis counseling to a suicidal teen
- Scholarship for 1 low-income child to participate in an outdoor education program
We all know there are many communities that have been impacted by the recent natural disasters. Please click here to view a list of charities participating in the 2017 MCC who are addressing the needs of these communities.
