Grants to standing beneficiaries may increase or decrease from year to year subject to need and available resources.
Grants to temporary beneficiaries will usually be subject to decreasing amounts over the life of the grant unless they are specifically championed by one of the trustees.

Temporary beneficiaries will be eligible to receive funding for up to three consecutive years, after which the recipient must take a one-year hiatus without any grants.
Grantees will be limited to organizations located in Maryland, with preference to organizations located in greater Baltimore, unless the non-local requester provides unique services to the Baltimore Jewish community.
