As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, MAGIC’s primary goal is not to profit, but rather to provide invaluable resources to the public and make a positive impact on our community. More specifically, we create the space for tech innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive.
We rely on the support of our friends, neighbors, and community in order to continue our efforts to enhance economic development in Westminster and Carroll County. Wondering about the ways you can help an organization like us? Here are some ideas:
Start Your Day with MAGIC Beans!
Here’s a way you can support your local nonprofit and stay caffeinated at the same time. MAGIC has recently teamed up with Westminster roasters Furnace Hills Coffee to create a unique line-up of delicious roasted coffee blends called MAGIC Beans. The sales from these products will support our mission to build a tech ecosystem in Westminster for creating jobs and supporting startups.
