Funded Partnerships

Family League has deep relationships at all levels, from the Mayor’s office to on-the-ground community organizations and is able to bring key players to the table to develop tools for change. Family League also connects and convenes private and public funders, local community leaders, educators, health professionals and business to develop a shared agenda for action.

We invest funding into community-based organizations to help children and families in Baltimore reach their full potential. We strive to improve institutions so that individuals can grow, learn, and build a better community.

Family League’s funded partners are our link to Baltimore. We connect a wide range of partners with funding opportunities to help them mutually reach our goal that by 2030, all children in Baltimore will be born healthy, succeed academically, graduate high school and transition into higher education and the workforce.

If you have any questions, please contact the Funded Partnerships team at fundedpartnerships@familyleague.org.

We will also provide anonymous youth surveys that provide self-reflection on impact and experiences with the program. The anticipated deliverables for the evaluation project include:
A. Development of research questions and logic model in consultation with Family League
B. Document/data review and analysis
C. A final public report that contains an executive summary, findings of the study, data visualizations,
recommendations, etc.

Additional Funding Opportunities from Partner Organizations

Equity Leaders Action Network (ELAN) Fellowship – The BUILD Initiative

The BUILD Initiative is excited to announce the second cohort of Equity Leaders Action Network (ELAN) Fellowship. The Fellowship supports state, county, tribal, and territorial leaders to work within early childhood systems to advance policies, practices, programs, and initiatives that intentionally redress racial marginalization and create racial equity. Applicants should be interested in taking action within their roles, responsibilities, and spheres of influence to remediate and reduce disparities and inequities for young children (birth to age five), their families, and communities. The Fellowship is designed to nurture a community of leaders who work together to support, critique, and strengthen their shared commitment to building early childhood systems in which race and place no longer determine child outcomes and family well-being. The two-year ELAN Fellowship, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, will run from April 2021 to April 2023.

Up to twenty-five leaders working in state, county, tribal or territorial programs, initiatives, or structures within the early childhood system (e.g., early learning and care, health, child welfare) will be selected to participate in the second ELAN cohort. Applicants’ leadership work in early childhood systems must be focused on young children (prenatal to age 5). The ELAN Fellowship program intentionally seeks to include early childhood system and program leaders from communities and groups who historically have experienced and/or currently experience racial, ethnic, and economic marginalization.

Applications are due February 19, 2021.

Visionaries of Color Virtual Nonprofit Summit

Sat, November 7, 2020, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST

Join us in a productive space where people of color can learn, network, and dream bigger for their non-profit organization. Nonprofit Elders and experts will guide you through the non-profit building process, funding, and more.

Many Nonprofit Visionaries of color start organizations to address an issue(s) that has personally affected them or their communities. Unfortunately in the midst of the trauma that ignited the idea paired with inexperience it can become difficult to present the organization to potential funders and the community in a way that will gain credibility.

First we must invest in healing, create a structure for success, and build the organization to last.

SEE YOUR VISION IN IT’S FULL COLOR!
