LETTER FROM PRESIDENT & CEO

As Baltimore Corps celebrates five years of enlisting talent to accelerate social innovation in Baltimore and advance a citywide agenda for equity and racial justice, we invite you to join us in celebrating our accomplishments and looking ahead to our future planning and success

We are excited to have you celebrate with us during our 5th anniversary week of events. We can’t wait to share our vision for Advancing Baltimore’s Future Through Equity, Innovation, and Leadership over the next 5 years and beyond! Over the course of the week of October 15–19, we will host a series of events in the community to celebrate and share our vision for putting our muscle to work in the years ahead in the most intentional and impactful way. As the Baltimore Corps network has grown from start-up to a new anchor for Baltimore, the depth and breadth of our diverse network is making it possible to truly turn the corner on many of the challenges we’re leaning into as a City. 

Five years into our mission, we continue to feel the “fierce urgency of now,” and need your active engagement in, and sponsorship of, these important conversations that will help advance not only the work being done here in Baltimore, but the model being set for such social innovation across the country.

As a a sponsor, your company will reach a diverse number of unique and committed community leaders in the Baltimore community. People are at the heart of who we are as an organization. Our network of fellows, elevation awardees, leaders, supporters, volunteers, and alumni are the reason we exist and have been successful. From the grassroots community organizer to the Fortune 500 corporate leader, our network is comprised of individuals from all walks of life. Our alumni network is comprised of 150 fellows, elevation awardees, and mid-, senior-, and executive-level Place for Purpose professionals, while our extended network includes more than 500 influencers across Baltimore’s social sector and philanthropic leaders from across the country.

Additionally, Baltimore Corps’ email list is comprised of more than 1,700 individuals, and has an average open rate of 26 percent (as compared to the universal email open rate of 6 percent). What’s more, Baltimore Corps’ average 7 percent click-through rate is more than double the nonprofit average of 3.05 percent. Baltimore Corps also reaches more than 10,000 people through our multi-platform social media presence.

Our sponsorship packages offer opportunities for every budget. If you do not see a package that fits your particular interests, please feel free to reach out to us, as we are happy to build a package for you. 

Thank you in advance for supporting our work. We look forward to celebrating our 5th anniversary with you in October! 

Sincerely,

 

Fagan Harris
President & CEO
