Keep Me Maryland is the 911 of Maryland’s scholarship funds. Your gift provides fast, emergency aid to students in circumstances so dire that they’re at risk of withdrawing from Maryland. Founded during the worst of the national economic crisis in 2009, the fund gets requests from 3,200 students every year who are facing a parent’s job layoff or illness, or who are simply struggling independently to pay utility bills, and buy books and food. Every dollar of Keep Me Maryland donations supports these students in need. Your gifts really do make a difference: 92% of fund recipients have graduated or are still here at Maryland.
