Grants of $10,000 and $15,000 to Maryland and Washington, DC nonprofit organizations to improve the education and welfare of at-risk children and youth living in the Metro Baltimore and Washington, DC areas. Proposals are invited from local nonprofits that provide at-risk youth with clothing, shelter, nutritional assistance, and educational support (i.e. teaching reading, life skills, math, and mentoring).

Two $10,000 grants and one $15,000 special grant will be awarded to community organizations that already have the manpower in place, but lack the financial support to implement their specific local projects.

As part of the award of the $15,000 special grant, the selected grant recipient will receive a Volunteer Supplement. The committee will choose an organization to which 10-20 of the firm’s employees can volunteer their time. Organizations will have an opportunity to apply for the Volunteer Supplement on the grant application form.
