Family League has deep relationships at all levels, from the Mayor’s office to on-the-ground community organizations and is able to bring key players to the table to develop tools for change. Family League also connects and convenes private and public funders, local community leaders, educators, health professionals and business to develop a shared agenda for action.

We invest funding into community-based organizations to help children and families in Baltimore reach their full potential. We strive to improve institutions so that individuals can grow, learn, and build a better community.

Family League’s funded partners are our link to Baltimore. We connect a wide range of partners with funding opportunities to help them mutually reach our goal that by 2030, all children in Baltimore will be born healthy, succeed academically, graduate high school and transition into higher education and the workforce.
