Grant and Scholarship Overview
We award grants to nonprofit organizations and scholarships to students from the hundreds of charitable funds that make up the Baltimore Community Foundation. Generous donors have established or contributed to funds at BCF to make these grants and scholarships possible.
Currently we are focusing our discretionary resources in the areas of education and neighborhoods.
Many of the grants distributed by BCF each year comes from donor-advised funds at the recommendation of the fund advisor. Most donor-advised funds are not open to requests for funding. BCF also distributes grants from funds that are restricted for specific purposes and general causes, including funds established to benefit public agencies.
