Please consider contributing to the College Park City-University Partnership to support the following programs. For Milkboy ArtHouse or Homeownership Program donations, you may be eligible to receive a Maryland CITC tax credit equal to half the value of your donation over $500.
The Partnership has $20,000 in tax credits available for Maryland businesses and residents for both initiatives.
The City-University Partnership’s Homeownership Program is part of an effort to increase the number of University of Maryland and City of College Park employees living in the City as outlined in the University District Vision 2020. It provides $15,000, in forgivable loans, to full-time, benefits-eligible University and City employees to become homeowners in the City of College Park–ultimately reducing commutes, strengthening neighborhoods, and supporting our local economy.
An Initiative to Support Artistic Programming at Milkboy + ArtHouse
A creative partnership between The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and MilkBoy Philadelphia, MilkBoy ArtHouse is a local crossroads for dynamic entertainment, inspired social gathering and creative dining. MilkBoy ArtHouse will have two performance spaces and an art gallery in a friendly setting with eclectic cuisine and boundary-breaking artists that reflect the diversity of College Park, our county and our region. MilkBoy ArtHouse will nourish imagination and ignite the creative impulse that will shape the future of the performing arts on our campus and in our community. Your contribution for creative programming that brings together diverse audiences for artistic discovery helps our community thrive.
College Park Safety Ambassador Program
The College Park Safety Ambassador Program is designed to enhance existing public safety services. Safety ambassadors are trained, non-sworn public safety personnel who focus on safety and presence. Under the supervision of the University of Maryland Police Department, Safety Ambassadors benefit all members of our growing community. They patrol in the public right of way and greet visitors, give directions, provide outreach to community members and visitors in need, report problems they see such as potholes, downed trees, streetlight outages and other hazards, and address nuisances and other quality of life issues. Learn more.
You can also send a check for each of these initiatives. Please address the check to the “College Park City-University Partnership” and note which program you are contributing to. Our mailing address is 4500 Knox Road, College Park MD 20740.
Your financial support will support the Partnership as it implements the University District Vision 2020. The College Park City-University Partnership is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization. Your contribution may be tax-deductible.
