Want to Make a Real Difference?
Become a donor!
The best way to make a difference in the lives of children in Maryland who are blind, visually impaired and multiply disabled is to make a contribution to The Maryland School for the Blind. Your contribution allows MSB to continue its tradition of excellence in serving students in every county of the state by providing dozens of programs and services. Without your help, this would not be possible.
Contributions to MSB are fully tax deductible. You can give to MSB in a variety of ways, including: general contributions, memorial/tribute gifts, in-kind donations, car donations, event sponsorships, or a gift from your estate.
Contributions of cash or stock are always welcome and may be made to the schools general operating fund or may be designated to be used for a particular program.
Gifts may be made in memory or honor of an individual. When your gift is received, it will be promptly and properly acknowledged to the appropriate person.
These donations include clothing, toys, books, tapes, furniture or other materials to be used by our students.
Car Donation Program
You may donate your used vehicle to MSB and providing the donor itemizes on his tax return, may deduct the actual sales price of the vehicle. As required by Maryland law, MSB's car donation program is licensed by the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA), license #W1202, and our car donation program is periodically monitored by the MVA. To arrange to have your vehicle picked up, or to learn more about this valuable program, contact Casey Joyce at 410-444-5000, ext. 797,
his is a great way for your business or company to help MSB and to gain positive exposure in the community. By sponsoring an event such as the UBS Fall Festival to benefit MSB, you will gain statewide recognition and invaluable PR.
