Grants of $10,000 and one grant of $15,000 to Maryland and Washington, DC nonprofit organizations to address the welfare and education of at-risk children and youth. Consideration will be given to proposals from local organizations focusing on clothing, shelter, nutrition support, and education (i.e. teaching math, reading, life skills, and mentoring) to at-risk youth residing in the metro Baltimore and Washington, DC areas.

Grants will be awarded to community organizations that already have manpower in place but lack the financial support to implement their specific local projects.

Baker Donelson will fund specific programs, rather than general operating expenses. The Firm will give priority to ambitious community organizations that already have manpower in place but lack the financial support to implement their specific local project. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to: reading and literacy programs, after-school programs, mentoring programs, and parent-child education programs.
