The Annual Fund
The Caroline Center Annual Fund is an indispensable source of support for the operating budget and includes gifts from individuals, groups, foundations and corporations. Contributions may be pledged and allocated quarterly or semi-annually.
When tuition-based educational programs or schools need to raise revenue, often raising tuition is the first step in addressing financial needs. At Caroline Center, we provide career and life skills training to women at no cost to them. The majority of our operating budget is directed to programmatic support. As a program that is tuition-free, we count on the support of donors.
Your gifts support Caroline Center's mission and you will be giving hope to disenfranchised women in Baltimore City who seek the skills and confidence to change their lives and the lives of their families.
Matching Gift Program
If you or your spouse's employer offers a matching gift program you may be able to double your gift to Caroline Center. Ask your company's Human Resources Department if your company matches charitable gifts to nonprofit organizations. You will need to include a matching gift form from your employer along with your gift.
