IMaryland businesses play a vital role in maintaining the state's quality of life, not only providing jobs and economic stability, but also offering charitable support to many projects and programs that enrich the lives of all Marylanders. In the same way that a business plan helps a company stay on course toward its financial goals, a charitable giving program — however informal — can help a business achieve its charitable goals and effectively support the communities it serves. Determining where your company's interests and those of the community intersect is particularly key to a successful giving program. 

Giving Tuesday is becoming a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. December 2, 2014 will mark the third national Giving Tuesday.This year a new statewide effort called Maryland Gives More will promote giving in an effort to make Maryland the "Most Generous State in America." With a goal to raise $12.2 million across the state, Maryland Gives More is building off last year's very successful Giving Tuesday effort called B'More Gives More, where Baltimore organized the second biggest fundraiser in the nation recognizing over $5 million in giving in just one day. ABAG is again partnering with Maryland Nonprofits, and others - including many foundations, corporate givers, funders and individuals - to spread the word and help fund hundreds of nonprofits raising dollars and awareness for their cause.
