A publicity-shy charity headquartered hundreds of miles from Maryland is quietly working on plans to build an office building in Carroll County that would provide rent-free space for area nonprofit organizations. The Georgia-based foundation has for several months met behind the scenes with Carroll charitable groups and government officials to determine how it could help serve the county's needy. Avoiding public meeting agendas and stressing the importance of proceeding with discretion, the nonprofit Anverse Inc. foundation has come up with a preliminary plan to donate space for groups such as Head Start and the Community Foundation of Carroll County.
