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.

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.
