Foundations 101 and Maryland's Philanthropic Landscape

Foundations 101 and Maryland's Philanthropic Landscape

Friday, January 28, 2022, 9:30 - 10:30 AM

With more than 1,430 foundations in Maryland and a growing landscape of corporate funders, donor-advised funds, giving circles, and public charities, the first step to grant seeking is understanding the basic operations of organized giving. How do different types of grantmakers make decisions? What are the current local priorities in philanthropy?  How do I, or can I, get to know grantmakers?  Where can you get more information?

Maryland Philanthropy Network invites the staff and board members of nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations and social enterprises to our recurring program on foundations and the broader landscape of philanthropy in Maryland. This learning opportunity is most appropriate to new grantseekers and to nonprofit organizations in Baltimore and central Maryland. The webinar provides basic knowledge of foundations and other grantmakers and resources for finding funders/funding opportunities.
