Baltimore Community Foundation Grants $1 Million to Support Majority-Black Communities and Black-led Nonprofits in Baltimore
The Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF) announced $1 million in grants to 20 nonprofits providing programs or services that directly support the resiliency of majority-Black communities in targeted neighborhoods of West and Northwest Baltimore. These grants are part of BCF’s West x Northwest Impact Grants program, funded by Facebook.
BCF designed its West x Northwest Impact Grants program to build upon the place-based investments the organization has made in the area between North Avenue and Liberty Heights Avenue since 2019 — specifically focusing on the school communities of Dorothy I. Height Elementary in Reservoir Hill/Penn North, Liberty Elementary in Forest Park, and Calvin Rodwell Elementary/Middle School in Howard Park. Grantees were selected based on their deep connection to and understanding of the unique needs and strengths of these communities.
