Associated Black Charities to Host Community Capacity Building Sessions to Assist Residents with Grant Applications for the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund

BALTIMORE – The Associated Black Charities, fiscal manager for the $12 million Baltimore Children and Youth Fund (BCYF), today announced three community capacity building sessions on Saturday, June 16 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday, July 2 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and on Saturday, July 7 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The purpose of the sessions is to assist Baltimore City residents in submitting grant applications for the BCYF.

“It is not everyday that community members have an opportunity to apply for funding from a $12 million fund, and consequently, not everyone knows the steps for navigating the grant submission process,” said Diane Bell-McKoy, president and chief executive officer of the Associated Black Charities. “Lack of history of submitting grant applications shouldn’t be a deterrent to funding for individuals and groups who are already working to support and uplift Baltimore children and youth.”
