Help Maryland nonprofits fundraise to secure grant award


More than a dozen Maryland nonprofits have applied for 2022 A Community Thrives grants and are raising matching funds required for final-round consideration.

Organizations looking to better their communities are now fundraising until Aug. 12 as a part of the Gannett Foundation’s crowdfunding and grant program. More than 750 organizations have applied for the $2 million initiative in hopes of implementing community-building ideas.

The nonprofit organizations have one month to raise money through the online platform Mightycause to reach a minimum of $3,000 or $6,000, depending on the group’s operating budget, in order to qualify as a grant recipient.

Through the Mightycause site, users can donate to an organization of their choice by filtering the cause type, location and category. Donors have the opportunity to help these organizations advance their safe spaces for teens with cancer, expand no-kill animal sanctuaries, improve musical training programs and more.
