For more than 20 years, The Baltimore Life Companies have viewed community involvement as our responsibility, not only through financial support of local organizations, but through our employees’ commitment to volunteerism. To further demonstrate our belief in good corporate citizenship, Baltimore Life has established a community grants program to help nonprofit organizations enhance the quality of life in communities—Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington D.C. and West Virginia—where our employees live and work. Grants of up to $500 will be awarded to multiple organizations.
All organizations applying for a $500 grant must be certified by the Internal Revenue Service as a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization. Acceptable organizations also include libraries, senior centers, homeless shelters, or other non-profit organizations under the direction of governmental agencies. Projects and programs that help distressed families, enhance public safety and the community, and combat community deterioration receive special consideration. Religious organizations are not eligible, except when a religious organization houses a nondenominational charity such as a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.
All grant applications must be received by The Baltimore Life Companies no later than Friday, October 13, 2023, at 5:00 p.m.
