Our 'WHY'

Our greatest and most persistent challenges have been caused by people—they can and will be solved by people. 


As a nonprofit, we know the importance of mission. We only work with employers who are committed to Baltimore Corps’ values of advancing equity, increasing sector effectiveness, and putting Baltimore first. Our candidates are experienced mid-to senior-level professionals who are looking to make a difference in the work they do.

What you get with Place for Purpose

Curated talent

We do the screening, providing only vetted, mission-driven, qualified candidates for your open position. 

A diverse talent pool

Diversity is not a catch-phrase for us – equity is at the heart of our mission. Baltimore’s social impact sector too often does not reflect the city in which it operates – we work to change that. 

A partner

Hiring – particularly in the social impact sector – is intensely personal. We are committed to working so closely with our clients – from position development until long after a match is made – that we’re considered a part of their team.

As a mission-driven placement service, we believe organizations of all sizes working within the social impact sector should be able to find the right talent. That’s why we activate our talent pool with your up-front deposit of just $250, and charge a flat placement fee of $2,000.

For this low rate, we provide a team dedicated to achieving results for your organization and for our community. Package rates are available. Please contact us for more information and to finalize up-front pricing to fit your needs.
