 Mission and Programs


The Baltimore City Foundation, Inc., is committed to enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of Baltimore City.  The Foundation enables the Baltimore City government to raise philanthropic resources that promote many of its health and human services priorities. Additionally, the Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations that support youth and underprivileged Baltimore City residents.  In conducting activities for the support or benefit of the City, and in receiving charitable contributions from private sources, the Foundation also promotes public/private collaboration for the benefit of the City and its residents. 


The Baltimore City Foundation was established in 1981 by the Honorable William Donald Schaefer.

YouthWorks - Baltimore City's summer jobs program - is the largest program administered through the Baltimore City Foundation. For more than 20 years, YouthWorks has annually offered at least 5,000 young people ages 14-21 summer work experiences with private sector, nonprofit, and city and state government employers throughout the Baltimore region. For the past three years more than 8,000 young residents were matched with five-week employment offers. YouthWorks participants work in a variety of industries and are exposed to a wide range of careers while gaining basic workforce readiness and career-specific skills. YouthWorks is operated by the Mayor's Office of Employment Development with the assistance of employers and workforce partners, and financial support from multiple contributors who make donations through the Baltimore City Foundation.
