By participating in committees and other joint learning activities, engaged funders work as a team with staff and other partners to develop programs and select which projects receive BNC support. This process allows for significant discussion and interaction among the membership, whether they represent a major foundation with projects in many Baltimore neighborhoods, or a smaller organization whose grant to BNC is its only community development expenditure.
BNC also works closely with other funders within the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers as well as other community development partners and intermediaries to align resources, identify gaps and to develop new strategies and support for neighborhood revitalization in Baltimore. See below for a list of our current members and partners.
