Partnering for social good
and enhancing community life.

T. Rowe Price's community investments aim to support the growth of strong nonprofit leaders, organizations, and nonprofit networks. We do this by harnessing our collective power to support our nonprofit partners wholistically, as we aim to expand opportunities, ​enrich lives and ​enable equitable solutions ​to help lift people and communities.


The T. Rowe Price Foundation was founded in 1981 and has since given over $182.3M USD in direct grants and matching gift contributions. T. Rowe Price is committed to advancing community goals and creating positive change in locations where T. Rowe Price associates live and work.


Through our community investments, we support the advancement of community leaders, community organizations and community networks.

For most grants, our team will approach an organization directly to invite them to submit a grant proposal. Throughout the year we also review unsolicited grant proposals that align to our giving areas. Our grants are unrestricted for general operating purposes to help expand an organizations’ mission and ability to do their important work. Our funding primarily supports organizations in Baltimore as well as in Colorado Springs, San Francisco and New York that have an approved nonprofit status [Internal Revenue Service 501(c)(3) sections 509(a)(1), 509(a)(2) and qualifying 509(a)(3) supporting organizations] or that are fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) public charity. 

The following steps outline the grant making process: 

Step 1:

Review our community investment areas, attend an info session , and complete a questionnaire to determine if there is alignment with your community focus.

Step 2:

Connect with a Foundation team member to discuss how we may partner or learn how to submit a simple grant application. We welcome applications that you have already submitted to other funders. 

Step 3:

Continue a partnership with us. Join our mailing list to utilize capacity building offerings, apply for T. Rowe Price volunteerism and pro-bono opportunities, and more.
