What's Up? Gives



The What's Up? Foundation is a charitable organization with the mission to enrich the Annapolis community through donations to programs that directly benefit the people and special environmental needs of this region. Since its inception, the What's Up Foundation has given over $39,000 to worthy local charities. Much of the donations for those in need come from the proceeds of What's Up Media events, including the Best of Annapolis party and Chesapeake Beer Madness.

The What's Up? Foundation, a fund of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, has a charitable mission to enrich the Annapolis community through donations to programs that directly benefit the people and special environmental needs of this region.

Support your Local Charities

Each year, What's Up? Media hosts a Best of What's Up? party to celebrate and showcase the regions favorite restaurants, services, and industries. An extensive silent auction allows What's Up? Gives to donate 100% of the proceeds to local charities the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and the Hospice of the Chesapeake, while silent aution winners are able to take home incredible products and services from their favorite area vendors.

A portion of every WonderDeal sale goes directly to the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. Please visit our website WonderDeal.net to learn more about our efforts to save the Bay, and how you can become a member and help celebrate, and save, our community.
