Chamber of Commerce 2014 Nonprofit of the Year

AAC Community Action Agency 2015 Outstanding Organization Award

Box of Rain is a 501(c)3 organization that offers year-round programming designed to inspire and encourage Annapolis area youth, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances. Our mentoring focus helps Box of Rain kids build self-esteem, develop life skills, and earn a sense of accomplishment that leads to positive contributions to our community.

Our program has mentored more than 500 kids right here in Annapolis. We work with area school guidance counselors to build participation. The program is free to participants. Many of our kids joined the program as elementary school students and are now working as Box of Rain counselors. Some are now in college. All will tell you that the Box of Rain experience changed their lives.

Box of Rain depends on the generous contributions of area residents and business. We welcome donations and volunteer services, and thank those who have contributed so generously to our success.

Special Thanks To 2016's Premiere Sponsor...

Just, Kaysha, and Raivon get the varnishing just right, with guidance from George Smith and Jim Harmon. Seven weeks of sweat equity...we're almost there! Pretty impressed with our young builders this season...and our knowledgeable team of volunteers: Jim Harmon, Mike Jewell, Ken Seamon, George Smith, Jim Wildey and parent Bruce Addison.

Special thanks to John Harris and Chesapeake Light Craft for donating an Eastport Pram kit to Box of Rain—a gift they've made to us for many a season. Also big thanks to John JW Widmayer for allowing the generous and entirely free use of his industrial space to us. 

Without the generosity of businesses like these, Box of Rain would not exist.
