It is the goal of the Central Baltimore Partnership to engage with everyone who wishes to partner with us in galvanizing the renaissance of Central Baltimore.  And we count most, if not all, of Central Baltimore’s neighborhood organizations, nonprofit agencies, community development corporations, major property owners, universities and foundations active in one of our neighborhoods as our Partners. But we’re always looking for new Partners. And you don’t have to be one of the types of aforementioned organizations. If you are interested in the renaissance of Central Baltimore, we are happy to have you aboard. Large or small, public, or private, if your organization’s work falls within our boundaries, we would be delighted to partner with you. So please contact us. Being headquartered in Central Baltimore is not a prerequisite. We also work with organizations that address the city as a whole, including the government of Baltimore City. We have had strong working relationships with every administration since we began in 2006. Specifically, Baltimore Mayors, in multiple administrations have committed city administration officials and key agencies to partner with the Central Baltimore Partnership.
