City releases third update on the progress of the nonprofit managing the Children and Youth Fund
BALTIMORE, MD - The City of Baltimore released a third progress report on the establishment of the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund.
The Fund is being managed by Associated Black Charities.
The effort to establish a Baltimore Children and Youth Fund was launched in 2015 by Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young. It was approved by voters in November 2016 with over 80 percent support. The non-lapsing Fund is supported through an annual set aside of property tax revenue. The City selected Associated Black Charities to administer grants from the Fund one year with the option to extend for one additional year.
The Fund achieved the long-awaited goal of recommending grantees for funding during this reporting period, with a significant proportion of the 84 proposals coming from small, grassroots organizations
