Baltimore Community Foundation
Baltimore Community Foundation is a philanthropic foundation created by and for the people of Greater Baltimore, where many donors join together to make the region they love a better place, today and for future generations. With assets over $170 million comprised of over 800 charitable funds, BCF has granted over $392 million since its inception in 1972 and is one of the Baltimore region’s top grantmaking foundations. Our mission is to inspire donors to achieve their charitable goals from generation to generation and to improve the quality of life in the Baltimore region through grantmaking, enlightened civic leadership and strategic investments. Our action agenda organizes grants, initiatives and advocacy around this vision. The values that guide our work are trustworthiness, inclusion, and entrepreneurialism. In 2017, the Board of Trustees affirmed a strategic direction guided by its core elements of donors, community engagement and programmatic efforts and informed by a commitment to develop a framework that advances race, equity and inclusion to achieve BCF’s vision of a Baltimore that boasts a growing economy where all have the opportunity to thrive.
