The Federated Charities Corporation of Frederick was established in 1911 to help support a growing number of charitable organizations being established in Frederick County. More than 100 years later, we continue to do so by offering affordable operational space to emerging and established non-profit organizations.
Our fully renovated building consists of two connected 19th century structures and houses 7-10 charitable organizations at any given time. Our tenant-partners provide a diversity of support to our community in the fields of mental health care, legal assistance, and workforce development services in addition to sharing a love of Frederick’s historic downtown. By offering below-market rents, our non-profit tenants are able to better leverage their own financial resources, grow, and frequently move on to a larger, dedicated location of their own.
Federated Charities also operates the Beverly A. Sharrer Medical Equipment Loan Closet, which loans home health care medical equipment to Frederick County residents on a temporary basis – thereby eliminating the additional costs associated with an injury or illness. Walkers, canes, crutches and other equipment can be borrowed by any Frederick County resident, regardless of their financial circumstances.
For more than 100 years, we have been many things in the community but our commitment to local charities making a difference in Frederick has never wavered. We are proud to support these organizations who make a difference in the lives of all our residents.
Federated Charities is a 501(c)3 corporation. Our immediate past fiscal year 990-PF is available upon request. Prior years’ 990 documents are available on Guidestar.
We are proud members of the Maryland Association of Nonprofits, the Nonprofit Centers Network and the Frederick Chamber of Commerce/Nonprofit Alliance.
