The Nonprofit Alliance is a committee of the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce working to advance the vision of ensuring Calvert County has sufficient resources to fulfill the needs of the community. This team facilitates purposeful connections and collaborations between the Alliance and the for-profit sector.

Virtual meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month. This meeting allows for nonprofits to come together and discuss available resources, talk about how each organization is navigating COVID-19, and give members a chance to network with one another.

For more information, contact Lyndee Waldbauer.




The Calvert County Grants Collaborative is comprised of grant writers from nonprofit and government organizations in Calvert County. The group meets virtually every quarter to share information on grants they were seeking, fundraising needs within their organizations that could potentially be served by grant funding, and opportunities for organizations to collaborate on current and future grant projects.
