Annual Fund

An Annual Way to Help Grow Our Kids

Give the priceless gift of learning by making a gift to the Evergreen Heritage Center Foundation’s Help Grow Our Kids Annual Campaign. 

Your donation allows a child between the ages of 3-18 to have the chance to explore our historic estate and participate in our award-winning field trips. These funds provide critical matching dollars from our community that we leverage when we apply for annual program grants.

For every $25 you donate, another local child can participate in quality hands-on education at Evergreen. Our education programs—which are aligned with Maryland State Curriculum and Environmental Literacy Graduation requirement—create learning excitement, improve learning retention (by 25-50% per class), enable active science exploration, and encourage interest in careers in arts and sciences.

In a region where families struggle to just get by, it’s the type of education that helps break the cycle of poverty.

When you give to our Help Grow Our Kids campaign, you can be assured that 100% of your tax-deductible contribution will be spent on our education programs. Whether you choose to sponsor one child ($25) or ten children ($250), your donation will be used to make a difference directly in our rural community.

You can also honor or remember a loved one or animal companion with a donation in their name to our Help Grow Our Kids Campaign. When completing the donation form, please indicate the person or pet to be honored or remembered with your gift. Thank you for including the Evergreen Heritage Center Foundation among your giving plans.
