Grants are available to Maryland non-profits for programming that benefits the underserved and disadvantaged populations in the Baltimore community. The Foundation directs its funding to public and private educational institutions, human services organizations and cultural organizations, and supports initiatives to conserve Maryland's economically significant and endangered natural resources.

The Foundation has seven broad program areas of interest: community development; workforce development; education; health and human services; conservation and environment; and arts and culture. Within these areas, the Foundation invites requests for demonstration projects, feasibility studies, strategic planning, capital improvements, criminal justice and addictions, new construction and equipment, program development and enhancements, research, and program-related investments.

Weighted consideration is given to those applications that include evidence of a clear understanding of the nature of the issues, a well developed description of the proposed program that addresses the issue, well articulated goals and objectives, evidence of strong internal fiscal management and long-term fiscal viability, evidence of personnel with qualifications to achieve anticipated goals, realistic amount of request, evidence of enhancement of services to the community, and capability to measure results and communicate findings and lessons learned.

The Foundation does NOT fund educational programs at higher education institutions, medical facilities, individual scholarships, fellowships, annual operating expenses, sponsorships, deficit financing, endowments, travel or memberships.
