The Baltimore Summer Funding Collaborative issued a request for proposals as it seeks to fund programs serving Baltimore youth.

Formed in 2015, the Collaborative is a partnership between 13 public, private and nonprofit organizations that committed more than $3 million. Administered by Baltimore’s Promise, the Collaborative utilizes a common application and review process, but the members make their own funding decisions.

In 2018, the Collaborative funded 81 summer programs, including familiar tech community orgs like Digital Harbor Foundation, Dent Education and MdBio Foundation. The programs can focus on education, recreation or providing college and career readiness.

“High-quality summer programming has been proven to help reduce this learning loss or ‘summer slide,'” a press release states. “By expanding learning, recreation, and college and career readiness opportunities, the collaborative members hope that Baltimore City youth can access programs that allow them to learn and grow during the summer months.”

According to Baltimore’s Promise, to be eligible for funding, summer programs must:

  • Promote academic, social and emotional growth in children and youth and be inclusive of students of all abilities.
  • Serve youth from low-income families who live in Baltimore city.
  • If operating for four or more hours per day, they must have a plan to serve healthy meals to program participants.

Applications are open through Feb. 1, 2019.
