About the Campaign

The Campaign for BCF and Baltimore was launched in 2013 with a goal of raising $100,000,000 to support immediate investments in Baltimore neighborhoods and public education, and to build permanent endowment to strengthen BCF and ensure its ability to respond to Baltimore’s evolving needs today and for generations to come.

After three years, we concluded the campaign with a total of $103,741,647 in gifts from hundreds of donors who trust BCF and believe in Baltimore.

Campaign gifts address four purposes:

One: Immediate investments in education and neighborhoods.

Two: Endowment for BCF, to strengthen the organization for the future, so it can continue to set and pursue ambitious goals.

Three: Endowment for Baltimore, to generate income that BCF can use for the pressing needs of Baltimore today and the evolving needs of Baltimore tomorrow.

Four: Endowed donor-advised funds, a commitment from donors that their philanthropy will be a permanent resource.
