Generous Juror Program

The Circuit Court for Frederick County and the Frederick County Department of Social Services cooperate in a program entitled “Generous Juror Program.” Under this plan, jurors may donate their jury pay to the Department of Social Services Foster Care unit. The donations are used to provide for foster children in the county items which state budgets do not support, such as school band uniforms, funds for field trips, birthday and holiday gifts, etc. This arrangement may provide a solution for those jurors whose employers do not permit them to keep their jury pay.
