The Bal­ti­more Sum­mer Fund­ing Col­lab­o­ra­tive (SFC) will award more than $4 mil­lion in grants to 70 sum­mer pro­grams geared toward Bal­ti­more youth from low-income households.

Launched in 2014, the SFC pro­vides grant fund­ing to sum­mer pro­grams that sup­port the aca­d­e­m­ic and ear­ly career suc­cess of Baltimore’s young peo­ple. SFC-fund­ed pro­grams help youth con­tin­ue learn­ing over sum­mer break, con­nect young adults to valu­able work expe­ri­ences and enable par­tic­i­pants to devel­op new and exist­ing skills.

The Col­lab­o­ra­tive com­pris­es sev­er­al local insti­tu­tions, including:

Orga­ni­za­tions Award­ed 2024 Grant Funds

Grant Pri­or­i­ties

In choos­ing its 24 grantees, the Foun­da­tion pri­or­i­tized orga­ni­za­tions led by peo­ple of col­or and those with mis­sions focused on:

  • youth with involve­ment in the child wel­fare or juve­nile jus­tice systems;
  • LGBTQ youth;
  • youth from immi­grant fam­i­lies;
  • youth of col­or; and
  • youth with disabilities.

Casey is sup­port­ing some great pro­grams as part of the 2024 Sum­mer Fund­ing Col­lab­o­ra­tive,” says Adri­an McLemore, a pro­gram asso­ciate with the Casey Foun­da­tion’s Bal­ti­more Civic Site. The mix of new and famil­iar ini­tia­tives ensures that youth and young adults will have oppor­tu­ni­ties to thrive this sum­mer while still hav­ing fun.”
