The MCC is a workplace charitable giving program that offers State employees the opportunity to contribute to charities using the convenience of payroll deduction. Currently nearly 900 charities participate in the campaign. The collective generosity benefits the public health, safety, and welfare of Marylanders by providing, food, shelter, healthcare, mental health services, services to the poor, homeless, and those suffering from addiction, in addition to supporting the arts, faith-based initiatives, and much more.  In 2016, MCC’s employee donors raised $ 2,930,829 million dollars.
