Over the last 75 years, the Fort Meade Spouses’ Club has become synonymous with community service. The purpose of our organization is to establish and support worthwhile services and community welfare projects while promoting social and cultural activities for members.
SERVING FORT MEADE AND THE MILITARY COMMUNITY
Some community programs we have introduced include The Children’s Holiday
Party, Clean Up! Fort Meade, Operation Here at Home, and The Back to School Bash.
Our organization also sponsors multiple scholarship programs, last year awarding a
total of $58,600 to military dependent high school seniors as well as spouses of
enlisted military members in the Fort Meade Community. Due to our contributions
and impact, we were named Organization of the Year for Fort Meade in 2015, 2017
and 2019, logging more than 15,000 hours as a club last year.
OPERATION HERE AT HOME
CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY PARTY
A military spouse workshop designed to bring people

This event gives spouses an opportunity to feel secure in their community and build their marketability, resumes, and interview skills.
Each year, the FMSC devotes thousands of
volunteer hours readying for the Children’s Holiday Party. This event is the largest community
program that the Club has the pleasure of providing. Together we go above and beyond each year to continually surprise and amaze the children of
The Fort Meade Spouses’ Club is committed to the educational advancement of military children and spouses.
The FMSC scholarship program is the heart of who we are as an organization: we strive to create opportunities and empower our Fort Meade community.
