The Be. Org, B-360 and I AM MENtality have partnered to form The Baltimore Legacy Builders Collective (“The Collective”): a group of Black-led organizations collaborating to provide 100 plus hours of training, transferable skills & empowerment to 1300 youth and young adults in the greater Baltimore area. In late 2019, The Collective secured funding from the T. Rowe Price Foundation to hire a Chief Development Officer (CDO) which is a shared fundraising resource across the three organizations and for The Collective in order to help build capacity and ensure sustainability. As part of this partnership, we plan to empower other community-based organizations to build capacity and replicate this shared CDO model with both technical support to cohorts and direct funding to a select group.
The Collective has also decided to pool our GivingTuesday efforts so that we can both publicly launch The Collective and raise $30,000 in donations between companies and individuals. GivingTuesday is a global movement to bring awareness and attract funds to nonprofits around the holiday season. It started in 2012 and is a day to encourage generosity. GivingTuesday takes place annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, which for 2020 will be December 1st and the theme is: Together We Give. The goals for The Collective are to positively impact youth development, build capacity and strengthen financial literacy within Black-led organizations in Greater Baltimore, and related support would help us to accomplish these goals.
