The Hancock’s Resolution foundation (HRF) is the endowment fund for the historic farmstead Hancock’s Resolution. Our ambition is to ensure the availability of a core group of trained staff for this Anne Arundel County-owned historical park.

The HRF is an IRS-approved, 501©(3), non-stock corporation established in the State of Maryland. Therefore, any gift you give is tax deductible to the full extent of the law, depending on the type of gift selected. Some gift options are cash, stock, real estate, or investment in one of our pooled income or annuity funds.

Benjamin Franklin insisted that it is essential to teach history to the youth of America so that they can understand why our founding fathers so carefully constructed the Constitution and Bill of Rights. That is what we are here for: using an outdoor, hands-on demonstration working farm of the period to talk about the larger history of this country when the vast majority of Americans, including our founding families, lived on plantations and farms throughout the countryside.

Any questions you have should be addressed to President Henry Schmidt at 1-410-490-5107 or through e-mail at : .  We would greatly appreciate your support.
