Overview:

NOTE: Greenspring Advisors has been revamping our charitable strategy. We will be relaunching towards the middle of the year with a sole focus on organizations that promote workforce development.

Background

Since our founding, Greenspring has aspired to give back by making meaningful financial and relational investments in our local communities. To further our stewardship efforts and commitment to charitable giving, we created the concept of the Greenspring Grant Program in 2012 to support organizations that focus their efforts in Maryland, New Jersey and Georgia.

Grant Focus

Organizations must be focused on or have programs that address Workforce and Economic Development. Example include (but are not limited to):

  • job/skills education and training
  • job creation
  • entrepreneurship
  • developing and maintaining career pathways
  • growing internships and career opportunities
  • increasing financial literacy
