Empowering YOU to invest in the organizations that YOU are passionate about in the communities YOU serve
UNDERSTANDING THE VISIT BALTIMORE EMPLOYEE EMPOWERED GIVING CIRCLE
Choose the type of donation that works best for YOU: Monthly or One-Time Giving
All donations from Visit Baltimore employees will be combined into a grant fund
At the beginning of each quarter, YOU can nominate nonprofits that YOU are passionate about that meet the grant guidelines
Our partner, Legacy Collective, will vet the nominated organizations to ensure they’re a 501c3 organization in good standing with the IRS, and that they meet the grant guidelines
After the nominations are vetted, YOU will be given the opportunity to vote on who receives the funding
When voting closes, votes will be counted and employee donations, matched by Visit Baltimore, will be split among the top vote winners
What are the Admin & Operational Costs?
Admin and operational costs include Credit Card Fees,
Receipting, System Maintenance, Web Hosting, Grant Administration,
Project Vetting, Merchant costs, Administrative Support, etc.
How are the Funds Managed?
Legacy Collective has established a Donor Advised Fund with Pure Charity (a nonprofit organization) that will assist in the financial accountability, grant administration, and financial reporting. All Legacy Collective members will have visibility to the disbursement of grants and special project funds via their Member Dashboard, and Legacy Collective will produce an Annual Report reporting financial activity.
