Help us love our west end neighbours by giving generously.
St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry depends on gifts from supporters to keep the doors open. Core funding from our partner denominations, The United and the Anglican Churches, is important, but it is not enough to support all the programs we offer and the staff we need. We are grateful for individuals, congregations, foundations and public organizations that expand our reach through their giving. (Click here for more on Our Funders.)
Many giving opportunities exist, including general donations, sponsorship of programs and activities or an investment in our infrastructure. We also accept gifts in kind, such as food and program supplies. If you would like to discuss how your gift will be used please be in contact with our Community Minister.
