Baltimore Community Foundation


Since 1972, the 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. BCF serves the community in a variety of ways, including building a civic endowment, a permanent source of charitable support for the Baltimore region; helping donors plan and carry out their charitable giving in Baltimore, the region, and across the country; and working in partnership with others across the public, private and nonprofit sectors, bringing a consistent voice of leadership to critical civic issues. Since its founding, BCF has distributed more $438 million in assets to the Baltimore region, including $26 million in 2015.
