Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Middendorf Foundation was founded in 1953 by J. William Jr. and Alice Carter Middendorf to support institutions and projects in their areas of interest within the State of Maryland. Their focus included: education, healthcare, social services, environmental, historical preservation and arts & culture. During their lifetimes, Mr. & Mrs. Middendorf provided inspirational leadership to the Foundation. Upon their deaths, the Foundation received generous bequests which allowed it to begin making more sizable grants on a regular basis. In 2018, upon the death of their last surviving child, Alice Carter Middendorf, the Foundation received another large bequest which has further strengthened its ability to support causes of interest to the Middendorfs. Today the Foundation is governed by trustees who are honored to safeguard the legacy of the Middendorfs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation awards grants that align with our six areas of focus: Education, Healthcare, Social Services, Environment, Historic Preservation and Cultural Institutions. We also evaluate the impact of our grants and track each project’s progress.

We consider one-time costs in the form of capital campaigns for building and/or equipment, grants for endowment, matching/challenge grants, and scholarship funds for higher education. The Foundation does not consider requests for the following:

Annual giving campaigns

Operating budgets (including wages and salaries)

Expense for programs, conferences or sponsorships

Grants to individuals or grants for political organizations

Organizations seeking to re-distribute grant funds.

We have been making grants in Baltimore since 1972.

Since 1972 the Middendorf Foundation has awarded grants totaling in excess of $50 million.
