The Gayle Adams Community Service Grant was established to honor the service and distinguished career of Gayle Adams, who retired in 2014 after 40 years of service as director of Community Relations at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Community service grants will be considered for those organizations in southeast Baltimore whose projects focus on the improvement of the health and wellness of the surrounding community by utilizing innovative and creative responses to community health needs.
Grants for individual projects range from $250 to $1,500. All tax-exempt community organizations, as well as local schools, are eligible to apply.* Up to ten qualified projects a year will be considered for funding. Only one application per organization will be accepted for consideration.
The application process includes
Completion of a brief form describing the project and the benefit to the community (please keep descriptions to 200 words or less)
A plan to evaluate success
A budget, which can range up to $1,500
Awards will be announced by August 1. Upon selection of projects to be funded, grantees will be sent a Grant Agreement for their signature.
NOTE: All grant recipients will be required to submit reports at six months, and a post-grant report within two months of grant completion. The reports will need to describe the project implementation, costs and impact. The projects are expected to be completed within 12 months of award.
*Johns Hopkins Bayview programs are not eligible.
