The year 2020 could be summarized in one word: pivot. As our region's existing challenges became ever more urgent and donors and community partners were suddenly at a distance, the Baltimore Community Foundation put every tool in our toolbox to use in new and different ways - and we saw results! By year-end, more than $38 million had been donated across BCF funds and a record-breaking $30 million distributed in grants, impact investments, and program activities. We were successful in 2020 because we never lost sight of our unique role: bringing a diverse community of people together to build a better Baltimore. That role is more important than ever, as it's clear that the effects of COVID-19 will be with us for years to come.
