Grants of up to $10,000 are available to non-profit organizations that provide innovative, high-quality programming to local residents. The purpose of these grants is provide funding to help smaller, well-established Baltimore City non-profits make investments in specific, well-defined organizational development activities that would not otherwise be possible because of limited budget resources. Funding is intended to principally support the engagement of qualified outside consulting expertise.

The Foundation will consider applications in the following categories:
- Strategic Planning
- Fund Development & Sustainability
- Financial Management Systems Improvement
- Program Evaluation
- IT Assessment & Planning (not hardware or software purchases)
- Board Development, Executive Coaching, & Succession Planning
