The roof over our head matters…
The Federated Charities nonprofit center nurtures charitable organizations who make a difference in our quality of life but our space also inspires the more than 100 employees who work in 16 agencies and share it every day. Agencies who provide medical and dental care. Agencies who build up children’s self-esteem by teaching them music skills. Agencies who make sure history is preserved and maintained in our community.
Our building was given to us in 1930 intentionally to be used for charitable outreach and since that time, we have housed nonprofits in our (now) 23,000 square feet of commercial real estate in the heart of downtown Frederick. We are committed to offering below-market rental value to nonprofits because we know how important our bottom line really is. Shared space has been shown to positively impact both mission and finances and allows our partners to operate more efficiently and effectively in our community.
In addition to reinvesting annual average savings of more than $200,000 annually for mission-based services, Federated Charities offers steep discounts on internet and wi-fi, printing and copying, accounting services and professional development…the kinds of overhead costs that use up our resources and could be used to do good in our community.
Federated Charities is a member of the Nonprofit Centers Network, the Maryland Association for Nonprofits, the National Association of Fiscal Sponsors, the Frederick Nonprofit Alliance and has a Guidestar Platinum Level Seal of Transparency.
“Every penny we don’t spend on rent and utilities enables us to treat more patients. So really, Federated Charities low cost office space results in the care of more uninsured residents who can’t afford to go to a traditional doctor’s office.”
