So, we're a little new to this... but for our first-ever Giving Tuesday campaign, we want to do more than just ask our supporters for donations. As we near the end of what has been a pivotal year for Baltimore, we want to tell the story of 2016. What were the biggest questions and most important moments of the last twelve months, and what are we looking forward to in the coming year? We are pleased to be partnering with Close Up Baltimore to shine a light on some of the folks in the thick of some of Baltimore's biggest moments: check back here every weekday or follow us on social media to see all the stories.
We think this is important because Baltimore is a city where anything is possible--and our story is still being written. Please consider donating to Baltimore Corps this Giving Tuesday so we can continue connecting the city's visionary leaders and social entrepreneurs with the talent and resources they need to thrive. Thank you for your support!
