Guidelines for Baltimore Communal Giving

We believe that if all people can recieve a quality education they can more fully participate in the civic life and contribute to the economic growth of the community with the long term effect of addressing social inequities. The foundation seeks to increase Baltimore residents' access to quality education by supporting education at all levels and for all ages including programs that enhance public educational opportunities and vocational and job training programs. Recognizing that obtaining an education is difficult in times of crisis, the foundation also supports programs that provide housing, healthcare and other basic needs for Baltimore's most vulnerable residents in order to provide a pathway to educational opportunities.
