Who We Are

Close to 500 nonprofit charities operate in Charles County. Their work covers a broad spectrum of programs broadly including health, disabilities, the arts, education, law, environment, animal welfare, and employment.

We also track needs affecting the sector and measure its impact on the economy and community life.
