Invest in Baltimore

BCF’s action agenda organizes grants, initiatives and advocacy around a vision of a Baltimore with a growing economy, where all have the opportunity to thrive.

You can support our entire action agenda with a gift to the Invest in Baltimore Fund or by endowing a fund for Baltimore at BCF. Your fund for Baltimore will be used now and for generations to come to address Baltimore's most pressing needs.
