giving back | Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

For an arts organization built around in-person, shared experiences, this is a challenging time. Like many of you, we are actively thinking about how to support our artists, friends, neighbors and businesses that make our world such a joy to be a part of. We hope you keep the arts high on your priority list as you contemplate how you can help. With that in mind, one of the groups that will be hardest hit during this period are the small, local, restaurants and merchants in our community.

We have created a way for you to support them while also supporting the arts.

Please consider purchasing a gift card or gift certificate from your favorite local restaurant or merchant and then donating that gift card to Maryland Hall. We will integrate the donation into the silent auction at our annual Arts Alive celebration this September 11, 2020.

Your money will go to work right away in our community AND will help Maryland Hall raise needed funds in the future.

To participate, simply send your gift card or certificate to Maryland Hall, 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. Include your name, address and the gift card amount. We will send you a tax receipt for the donation. Gift cards are cash equivalent donations and thus tax-deductible when donated to a non-profit.

Businesses to Support (just a starting point!):

  • Restaurants
  • Boutiques
  • Gyms & fitness studios
  • Bed & breakfasts
  • Local hotels
  • Hair salons & spas
  • Coffee shops & cafes 
  • Art stores 
  • Local furniture & houseware shops


More Ways to Help

We also ask that you help lift up our Resident Companies and partner organizations during this time. We all rely on each other to share the arts and none of us do it alone. Performances and events are being rescheduled and/or cancelled and hard decisions are being made as rehearsal time windows on future performances become smaller. Many of these groups rely on the income of these events to operate. If a show has been cancelled or postponed to a date you cannot attend, please consider donating your tickets to the organizations helping them sustain their revenue and allowing you to receive a tax deduction. If you didn’t have a ticket to begin with, come be a part of the audience on the new date.

A list of cancellations and postponements can be found on our website here. We will continue to keep it updated and we will share our reopening date as soon as know more. Do not hesitate to reach out to us at with any questions.

Thank you for being a part of the Maryland Hall community. We’re here for you.
