Federated Charities keeps the lights on for 12 traditional nonprofit tenant-partners and four who operate for free in its incubator/co-working space. In rent reductions alone, tenants allocate back to those they serve more than $250,000 each year. Shared resources like copiers, internet, phone service, and meeting space also open to any nonprofit in Frederick increase the savings (hand sanitizer, no-touch lights, and other safety protocols make it work). In a very real sense, this means that a partner like Mission of Mercy can offer free medical and dental services to 220 more uninsured patients each year. Professional development on topics like board development, and diversity and equity, have been supplemented by personal/emotional navigation of the pandemic. Focusing energy on the nonprofit community, highlighting its work, and building its capacity, reminds us that everyone has something to give.
