At Chevy Chase Trust, we believe some of the best returns come from investing in people and communities. Many of our staff members volunteer and serve on the boards of local not-for-profit organizations. As a company, we support Smart Sacks, an initiative through Manna Food Center to provide school children with back packs of food for weekends when they do not receive school meals. That’s why we proudly sponsored the “Guide to Giving” featured in Bethesda Magazine’s November/ December 2011 philanthropy issue.
The “Guide to Giving” highlights 50 nonprofit organizations in Montgomery County that are working hard to improve the lives of low-income children, families and seniors in the area. Many of those in need will receive funding from the Sharing Montgomery Fund, a pooled fund established by the Community Foundation for Montgomery County. To learn more about the Sharing Montgomery Fund, go to CFMC. For information on the “Guide to Giving”, please click here.
