Greenwell Foundation 2019 Annual Report

View our 2019 Annual Report

The Greenwell Foundation is an independent entity, and is funded solely by program fees, donations, sponsorships, grants and gifts. The Foundation receives no financial support from the state of Maryland, or agency thereof including the Maryland Park Service or the Department of Natural Resources.

The Greenwell Foundation’s funding comes from a number of sources including the St. Mary’s County Commissioners, the United Way, grants, private philanthropy organizations, and supporters. A significant portion our operating budget is generated by program fees. Every effort is made to keep program fees as low as possible so that everyone may participate without creating a financial burden for them.

The Greenwell Foundation also works with a variety of organizations to obtain scholarships for program participants and sponsorships for our annual event.

An innovative partnership between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Greenwell Foundation provides the Foundation rent-free use of all park facilities and a substantial manpower contribution towards the overall upkeep of the park
