For every $10 you donate, you allow us:

  • to serve one of the more than 22,000 middle- and high-school students who conduct independent research projects in our Maryland History Day competition;
  • to honor one of the more than 1,600 fourth–twelfth graders who write thoughtful letters to an author whose book changed their lives in our Letters About Literature contest;
  • to bring history to life for one of Chautauqua's 3,500+ audience members;
  • to place one of 6,000 free copies of the One Maryland One Book title in a public high school classroom or public library; and
  • so very much more!
