BCF awarded more than $19 million in grants to the community in 2019. Many of these grants come from donor-advised funds at the recommendation of the fund advisor and most are not open to requests for funding. However, donors also give unrestricted gifts to BCF, or gifts restricted for a particular purpose such as education, arts, human services, or neighborhoods. These gifts support BCF’s strategic discretionary grantmaking. Our strategic grants promote the success of Baltimore’s young people by supporting effective public schools and equipping neighborhoods with the resources they need.
