Hello CCM supporters. We are applying to be part of Maryland's Community Investment Tax Credit program for 2022-2023. To support our application, we need pledge letters.

Would you consider donating a minimum of $500 between Jan. 1, 2022 and Dec. 31, 2023? You would earn a Maryland income tax credit (a reduction to the amount owed on your state income taxes) for half the amount of the donation.

It's a pretty good deal all around!
CCM is supported in our work on behalf of the community's children, which makes YOU feel good. PLUS you're ahead on what you'll owe the state come tax time.

Please email us at [email protected] for a sample pledge letter.
Or call if you have any questions: 410-990-1993.

We need to upload these letters to the application on THURSDAY, July 15th before 5 pm. LET US KNOW if you're thinking of making a pledge so we'll know to expect it!

Thank you.

Happy 5th night of Kwanzaa - Nia which means purpose. What personal goals do you have? What is your purpose toward benefitting the community?
Happy fourth night of Kwanzaa! Today's principle is Ujamaa - collective economy. Together we can increase the standard of living for families in our community by supporting minority-owned small businesses.
Make believe can fill the void.
Please Join Girl Scouts for information on how you can register you little one for Girl Scouts, also get information on becoming a Volunteer or a Troop leader for you daughter's troop! I will be at the following Libraries listed on the flyer, If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via WWW.gscm.org or call us (410) 358-9711.
Thank you for caring about parents/caregivers and children in this very practical and substantive way. I applaud your position, "Chesapeake Children’s Museum embraces a multicultural approach with regard to religious activities. We recognize childhood as a sensitive period in which families have the principal influence over the formation of religious beliefs." This is a very important statement as it assigns religious instruction to the home, not to institutions such as schools or governments. As a parent and grandparent, I appreciate your making these facilities available to help me to do my "job" better. Here is a brochure I have found helpful in explaining life's origins to myself and those in my care:
