Middle Grades Partnership (MGP) and the Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF) are pleased to announce the launch of MGP as a separate organization, effective on October 1, 2021. Middle Grades Partnership, the brainchild of former BCF CEO Tom Wilcox, was formed 17 years ago as an initiative of BCF. Since then, it has served over 4,500 middle school students from both public and private schools to reverse summer learning loss, provide enriching experiences, create strong friendships across racial and socioeconomic lines, and address issues of social justice. We at BCF and MGP are proud of the foundation we created together, along with the thousands of talented MGP students, to launch such a successful academic enrichment and social justice program.
As MGP becomes a separate organization they will be using the Fund for Educational Excellence as their fiscal sponsor. After September 30, 2021, all donations to Middle Grades Partnership should be mailed to the Fund for Educational Excellence, 800 N. Charles St., Suite 400, Baltimore, MD 21201 with a note that the gift is for Middle Grades Partnership.
