Please join us for the Maryland Community Foundations Maryland Philanthropy Network Quarterly Meeting. Together, as the Maryland Community Foundations Maryland Philanthropy Network (MCFA), we speak with one voice in promoting philanthropy to benefit towns, cities and rural areas across the state. Community Foundations specialize in helping individuals, families and businesses plan and carry out their charitable giving; and in building endowments to serve their regions' changing needs.
Please join the Maryland Philanthropy Network’s Health Funders for a conversation about alternative policing strategies for behavioral health. We will receive an overview of the behavioral health components of the Consent Decree, and discuss the potential alternatives needed in the system of care to promote diversion. We will hear from Crista Taylor, President and CEO of Behavioral Health System Baltimore, Terry Hickey, from the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, and Lieutenant Colonel Monique Brown of the Baltimore City Police Department’s Neighborhood Patrol Division – the CPIC leaders.
The Maryland Philanthropy Network is committed to fulfill its mission by embracing diversity and inclusion and focusing on racial equity in its governance and programs. The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDI) meets quarterly to infuse Maryland Philanthropy Network's values of diversity, inclusiveness and respect in our work.
Maryland Philanthropy Network is pleased to welcome Dr. Letitia Dzirasa, Health Commissioner of Baltimore City, for a conversation with members. Dr. Dzirasa began her role as Health Commissioner in March 2019.
