Maryland State Police have cautioned county residents to be aware of telephone solicitations from a company representing "The Maryland State and Washington D.C. Professional Fire Fighters Union."Police said several residents have been misled by the solicitation and that none of the money collected goes to Carroll County firefighters. The money is being raised for the AFL-CIO union, which represents area career firefighters, they said.Investigators said as of Jan. 30, the soliciting company, Civic Development Co. from New Jersey, and the union had failed to comply with Maryland law by registering with the Charitable Organization Division of the secretary of state's office and filing required reports.

CARL O. SNOWDEN is mistaken if he believes that a letter from the Secretary of State's Charitable Organization Division clears up questions about the finances of his yearly event, the "Keeping the Dream Alive/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Annual Awards Dinner."The letter confirms a fact already known. The organization is not a charity. The question remains: What happens to the thousands of dollars collected each year in the name of the slain civil rights leader?The Annapolis alderman, who plans to formally declare his campaign for mayor in Maryland's capital city this month, maintains the organization that sponsors the dinner is "an ad hoc" group that donates to community groups.

Key to the Columbia Association's wholesale revision of its "People's Plan" for Symphony Woods - i.e., the plan developed collaboratively by renowned architects, residents and CA Board and staff   - is a proposed "Symphony Woods Trust. " At CA's meeting on Jan. 31, I was surprised to learn that this entity would not actually be a "Trust. "  Rather, it would be a non-stock corporation, which will apply for IRS designation as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. In 1984, CA's application to the IRS for 501(c)

Owens called for community leaders to reach out to children to battle the low test scores and high dropout rates among minority students, a struggle she called "a community crisis."

Dear Editor: I wanted to express my sincere sympathy to the families and friends of Tameka and George, who died due to exposure and/or carbon monoxide poisoning while sleeping in a tent in Aberdeen. The fact that this could happen in an affluent area such as Harford County may seem mind-boggling; but, in reality, the sad truth is that the homeless population is growing everywhere. I was very happy to see in Mr. Vought's editorial he addressed these two tragic deaths. And he's right; indeed some homeless people do not want assistance.

Isaac Brown no longer drives, has trouble walking short distances and could barely carry a bag of groceries from the market to his third-floor apartment in East Baltimore even if he wanted to. So the 89-year-old depends on Meals on Wheels, a popular charitable service, to bring him two meals a day - one hot, one cold - to get him through the week. "The food is fine," said Brown on a recent day, casually regarding the plastic trays of pasta and vegetables and other healthful choices in front of him. But it's the volunteers who deliver the meals Brown likes most.

It was not that long ago that philanthropy in a place like Baltimore was tinged with an "alms-to-the-poor" aura. There was a bit of noblesse oblige involved in helping ease the miseries of those known as the less fortunate, as well as supporting the standard variety of educational and cultural institutions. That was then. Now, such philanthropy is almost an industry whose leaders spout buzz terms like "strategic coordination" and "leveraging" and "accountability." "Foundations have become much more significant in the local community over the last 20 years," says Robert Embry, head of the Abell Foundation.

I want to give shares of stock to a Catholic school. The stock is trading at about $100, but I bought it a long time ago for about $15. Is my deduction the present price or the purchase price of the stock? - M.M., Joppa, Md. This question illustrates why people are smart to donate shares of stock, mutual funds or bonds to charitable organizations, instead of giving cash. When you give shares of stock to a charitable organization, you can deduct the full value on your taxes - or about $100 a share in this case.

In a corner Reservoir Hill house-turned-after-school-hangout one recent afternoon, an 11-year-old girl known as Goofy is looking serious. Between chatter with friends and instruction by a local artist, Cieara Henson is focused on putting the final touches of paint and glaze on a clay tile she has made. It will go in a garden in her neighborhood that she helped create. She is working on the project with about a dozen girls: Monique, Robin, Jericka and others. None of them has likely given a thought to a man from Seattle named James E. Casey, who lived from 1888 to 1983.
