How Can We Help?
Director, Baker Fund Grants Program
Through BCF’s Neighborhoods Path, BCF supports informed citizen action, which we believe is at the core of neighborhood revitalization. Revitalization has the potential to create neighborhoods with healthy housing markets, where people want to live, and where people of modest means can stay in their homes and benefit from revitalization.
Widespread revitalization requires investments from the public, private and philanthropic sectors. While large scale investment from the public sector is required to bring about improvements in communities that have experienced deep disinvestment over the years, partnerships between the public, private and philanthropic sectors can stimulate markets and homeowner investment, helping people of all income groups build wealth through housing equity.
Neighborhoods is one of nine areas in which BCF focuses its strategic grantmaking. Grants from BCF’s Neighborhoods Path are made possible by endowments and contributions entrusted by donors to BCF for this purpose.
Our on-line application system provides applicants with a portal to start a new grant application or to continue updating an application already in process. Please be sure to select the “Save and Finish Later” button when you are finished working on your application in order to save your current session’s work. At any time during the application process you can select the “Contact Us” button in the top right corner of the screen and you will be able to send an email to the Baltimore Community Foundation staff with specific questions.
To be considered for funding, proposals must be submitted through the online application portal, however, we provide a PDF version of the application along with other useful forms here for your reference:
