About: Legg Mason's mission is "Investing to Improve Lives". Moving Baltimore, a great city with a storied history, forward will require true partnerships between our businesses, academia, government, philanthropy and faith communities. At Legg Mason, we have always taken pride in contributing to the communities in which we live and work through our time, talent and treasure. We are building a new approach to engagement in Baltimore. We will be developing and launching a neighborhood model that will bring together disparate non-profits, disrupting natural silos to meet the needs of the community. This neighborhood partner will create opportunity for Legg Mason to try new and innovative solutions. This model has the potential to be replicated in other cities in the US and around the world. Our work will be further dimensioned through direct investment opportunities. We know, that this model does not exist and that in order to create large scale change, cooperation and collaboration are key. Our initiative has the potential to change Baltimore and even the world!
