Grants averaging $20,000 to Maryland nonprofit organizations to promote school readiness for children from low-income families in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. LOIs are due by September 2. Funding is intended for general operations and specific projects. The Foundation is interested in partnering with organizations that have the capacity to effect systemic change, accelerate existing work, and drive outcomes in the areas of interest.
The Foundation funds projects or programs that serve populations from across the city, impact large numbers of people in multiple sites and demonstrate the ability to influence practices, policies, or structures in the broader school system. The Foundation is not interested in single-site, staff professional development; however, single site programs will be eligible for consideration if the organization can demonstrate that best practices are replicable or unique programming that has the potential to serve students city-wide.
Although not required, grant submissions that address the Foundation's education strategies and are focused in one of the two target neighborhoods: Reservoir Hill or Greater Highlandtown are encouraged.
The Foundation will support School Readiness:
Importance is placed on the quality of classroom experiences for the younger children. The skills and cultural competence of the teachers, the richness of the curriculum, and the overall environment in an early learning classroom are essential to success. Grants are available for organizations providing professional development, training, and exposure to model programs for childcare providers, particularly those targeting:
- Providers in low-income communities,
- Informal and family childcare providers, and
- Programs that serve English language learners
