Grant Program

Posted on October 4, 2016

The Visit Baltimore Foundation considers requests for support from Baltimore-area nonprofit organizations providing professional and/or soft skills training and associated support services to City residents, so long as there is a meaningful connection to or collaboration with the greater Baltimore tourism sector.

Grants applications are currently accepted on an invitation-only basis. To be considered, please submit a Letter of Inquiry so that we can determine if your purpose for seeking funds fits the Foundation’s priorities.

Letter of Inquiry Instructions:
Letters of Inquire should be typed in 12 point font, single-spaced with one inch margins, and should not exceed 2 pages. Include in your Letter of Inquiry the following information:

  • One sentence statement of the amount requested and proposed activity.

  • A statement of how your proposal fits within the Visit Baltimore Foundation’s mission and priorities, being sure to describe any partners in the Hospitality, Meetings or Tourism industry.
