“Through collective giving and collaboration, The Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle supports organizations that advance opportunities for women and their families in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.”
Grants are awarded in amounts of $25,000 or less. Awards are made for a one-year grant beginning on July 1 of the award year and ending on June 30 of the following year. All grant funds must be expended during this time period. Grant monies may be used only for the purpose stated in the grant application. If a funded project needs to be revised, for example, many organizations needed to adapt during the COVID pandemic, the grantee organizations should reach out to the BWGC and request approval of the changes. If grant funds are not spent by the end of the one-year grant period, the remaining balance must be returned to the BWGC, unless an extension has been requested and approved by the BWGC. If a project is discontinued during the grant period, unexpended funds must be returned to the BWGC.
Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations whose services and projects advance opportunities for women and their families. They support women of all ages and their families, helping them to live safe, healthy, and productive lives. The grants focus on assisting those who are economically challenged in Baltimore City and Baltimore County, thereby contributing to a more just, equitable, and inclusive region where all women can flourish.
Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle supports organizations working in Baltimore City or Baltimore County.
Organizations must qualify as a nonprofit organization, or have a fiscal agent that qualifies as a nonprofit organization, under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
