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.

Additional Funding Opportunities from Partner Organizations

The Baltimore Non-Profit Relief Fund
DEADLINE: Novemebr 20, 2020 at 11:50pm

From youth development to providing a helping hand to neighbors experiencing homelessness, nonprofit organizations play a critical role in helping Baltimore residents build a good life. Nonprofits in Baltimore responded quickly to the coronavirus pandemic to continue crucial services, and many have seen unplanned costs as a result of the public health crisis. Mayor Young created the Baltimore Nonprofit Relief Fund to provide a critical lifeline to Baltimore nonprofit organizations faced with unexpected costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This one-time, $5 million fund supports nonprofit organizations by reimbursing them for unplanned costs incurred since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. Through the Nonprofit Relief Fund, Baltimore City is one of a few places in the country prioritizing financial support for nonprofit organizations with federal CARES Act funding.

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation – Baltimore City Community Grants Program

The Weinberg Foundation and the Mayor’s Office have partnered to create a funding opportunity for small nonprofits (annual operating budget of $500,000 or less) that provide direct services to low-income individuals and families in Baltimore City.

Grants, up to $10,000 per year and a maximum of one year, will be provided for general operating support, program support, equipment, and capacity building (e.g., evaluation and audit costs). The Foundation will make all grant payments directly to the nonprofits.

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!
