Children and Youth Fund History:

In November, 2016, 82% of Baltimore City residents voted to guarantee a portion of assessed property to a dedicated youth fund, a bill proposed by City Council President Jack Young. The goal of the fund is to improve the lives of young people in the city's poorer neighborhoods. According to the Baltimore Sun, each fiscal year the city now is required to place at least $0.03 for every $100 of assessable property value in the fund "to be used exclusively for purposes of establishing new and augmenting existing programs for and services to the children and youth of this city."

This program is for Maryland Nonprofits and Maryland Philanthropy Network members and is a follow-up to the June 2017 briefing Baltimore City's Children and Youth Priorities.

Registration for this event is now closed. Please contact Elisabeth Hyleck if you want to attend but have not yet registered.
