Financial Statements
Notes to Financial Statements:
1. NATURE OF ACTIVITIES
   Baltimore City Foundation, Inc. (the Foundation) was incorporated on January 5, 1981 under the laws of the State
   of Maryland as a non-stock, not-for-profit corporation to foster and promote the growth, progress and general welfare
   of the City of Baltimore. The Foundation serves as a channel for the collection and disbursement of funds for various
   programs administered by local community organizations and Baltimore City agencies. The Foundation’s support
   comes primarily from individual and business donor’s contributions.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
   Basis of Accounting
   The financial statements of the Foundation have been prepared on the accrual basis.
   Estimates
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires
   management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures.
   Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.
   Fair Value of Financial Instruments
   The fair value of financial instruments have been determined through quoted market prices or present value
   techniques to approximate the amounts recorded in the statement of financial position.

3. CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS
   For purposes of financial statement presentation, the Foundation considers all money market funds and highly
   liquid debt instruments with maturities of six months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.
  Cash and Cash Equivalents consist of the following:                 2009               2008
                             Money Market Accounts             $      38,878      $      38,022

  At June 30, 2009 and 2008, Cash and Cash Equivalents include $226,744 and $203,128, respectively,
  of Agency Funds Payable as reflected on the Statement of Financial Position.

5. NET ASSETS RELEASED FROM RESTRICTIONS
   All contributions are considered to be available for unrestricted use unless specifically restricted by the donor.
   Amounts received that are designated for future periods or restricted by the donor for specific purposes are
   reported as temporarily restricted or permanently restricted support that increases those net asset classes.
   When a temporary restriction expires, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets
   and reported in the statement of activities as net assets released from restrictions.
  During the year ended June 30, 2009, $2,695,735 in net assets were released from donor restrictions by
  incurring expenses satisfying the restricted purpose specified by the donor or grantor.
