MSCF provides a cost-effective alternative to individuals and organizations who want to structure their philanthropy, while avoiding the burden and complexity of creating and managing a private foundation. MSCF also manages endowments for selected nonprofit agencies in the mid-shore region, and works with private foundations, both in collaboration and on occasion to help with the management of their programs and assets. In addition, the Mid-Shore Community Foundation currently engages in two grant cycles each year. Most grants are made for specific programs, rather than for operations or capital campaigns, and are primarily distributed to charities within the Foundation's region.
