    France-Merrick Foundation


    The France-Merrick Foundation is one of Marylands largest private foundations. While much has changed in its fifty-year history, the France-Merrick Foundation remains committed to making a difference in the Greater Baltimore region through its grant making.  

    The Foundations funding is aimed at increasing capacity of organizations to have a positive impact on lives and communities.  The Foundation has six main areas of focus:

    • Civic and culture
    • Community development
    • Conservation
    • Education
    • Health and human services
    • Historic preservation

    The Foundation funds within Maryland, with a particular focus on the Greater Baltimore area.  France-Merrick Foundations funding is focused on project-oriented requests which have defined beginnings and endings which do not require ongoing financial support, as opposed to annual giving or operational support.  Many of the Foundation's grants support new construction or renovations of existing buildings. In capital grant making, special attention is given to sustainable building practices and energy conservation measures incorporated into the project.
