BWI Marshall Community Partners Program Application – July 2019

    BWI Marshall Airport takes pride in collaborating with local nonprofit organizations to support their missions on behalf of neighbors and communities. Our new Community Partners Program will promote charitable nonprofit organizations to enhance public awareness about their important work.

    BWI Marshall Airport has dedicated locations throughout our airport terminal to display publicity panels highlighting their missions. Nonprofit organizations throughout the Maryland and Washington D.C. region are invited to submit the application below to be considered for participation in this program.

    The publicity panels will be 22” W x 28” H and must be printed on poster quality paper.

    Please attach your organization's IRS 501 (c) 3 letter here:

    All entries must be original in concept, design and execution and may not violate U.S. copyright laws. Any entry that has been copied from an existing photo or image or publicity that was created by anyone other than your organization is in violation of the program rules and will not be accepted.

    Entries must promote the organization only, rather than a specific program or campaign and may not solicit donations. No other product or organization can be shown in or on the publicity panels.

    The panels may not promote a political or controversial agenda or recruit membership for any institution or cause.

    Under the Maryland Solicitations Act, a charitable organization soliciting in Maryland generally must file documents with the Office of the Secretary of State and provide an annual update. Registration or proof of exemption is required to participate in the Community Partners Program. Registration is required prior to the commencement of solicitations. The type of registration required depends upon the level of charitable contributions received by a charitable organization. Please visit for registration, renewal and exemption information.

    All selections will be determined by the MDOT Maryland Aviation Administration. The artwork will be located on designated columns throughout the terminal. Panels will be displayed for a minimum of six (6) months.

    Each year, MDOT Maryland Aviation Administration will put out a call for program participants. If your organization is chosen the first year, you may submit again, but we may give preference to newly-submitted requests.

    The MDOT Maryland Aviation Administration will make the final decision regarding the suitability of the artwork. While it is not the intent to censor, inappropriate messaging will not be permitted.


    Selected organizations recognize and acknowledge that the approved panels may be subject to damage or other modifications and may have to be removed or relocated. If damaged or modified, the posters will have to be replaced at the sole cost of the organization.

    The chosen posters may be used by MDOT Maryland Aviation Administration for promotional purposes, including, but not limited to, BWI Marshall Airport website and marketing purposes. Images will include attribution wherever possible.

    Approved posters cannot be withdrawn before the end of the stated exhibit period.
