This site provides information about the MASSB Foundation, which is a tax-exempt Section 501(c)(3) organization.  Local counties throughout Maryland have established family assistance and other funds to support their local initiatives. See Participating Counties.

All donations are held in trust, with donations being spent only for social service programs that are (1) directly related to providing assistance for at-risk families, children, and vulnerable adults, and (2) not otherwise governmentally-provided.  See:

The Foundation is 100% volunteer, meaning --

  • There are no administrative charges; 0% overhead.
  • 100% of donations are used for local family aide programs within Maryland.
  • 100% of the net proceeds from fundraising events are likewise used for local aide programs.
  • UPDATED 12/31/2018: ​See Donation History for an indication of our growth since 2007.  

For further information (including a copy of the MASSB Foundation's governing documents, if desired) please contact Mark Poerio, who is one of its trustees.  See also About the Foundation.
