Chesapeake Bay Trust (the Trust) is a private non-profit, state-chartered grant-making organization established by the Maryland General Assembly in 1985, dedicated to promoting public awareness and participation in the restoration and protection of the natural resources of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay region. We currently administer $10-12 million via approximately 400 awardees per year from approximately 30-40 different unrestricted and restricted sources, including federal, state, local, corporate, private foundation funding partners, individual donors, Maryland’s Treasure the Chesapeake license plate program, and the Chesapeake and Endangered Species Tax Check-off.   Grants we award range from as small as a few hundred dollars to as large as $200,000 for projects in the K-12 environmental education, on-the-ground restoration, restoration science, and community engagement realms. In the past decade, the Trust has increased its grant-making four-fold through new partnerships, with current annual grant-making of approximately $10 million.
