Outright Gifts

Our students are making giant strides towards independence everyday. Your support makes it possible for MSB to never charge tuition or fees. A gift from you will enable us to continue to provide free service to all Maryland Students and their families including: 24 hour/5 day a week residential program, extracurricular activities, pre-k through high school classes, summer programming, extracurricular activities including: competitive swim teams, wrestling, track and field, soccer, goal ball, beep baseball, and music and recreational therapies.

The Maryland School for the Blind welcomes contributions by cash, check, through our secure online account or through credit cards. Outright gifts entitle the donor to an income tax deduction in the year of the gift. All contributions receive a letter of acknowledgement.
