Ways to Give

An Appealing Opportunity

We have a vision. We have a carefully laid plan. Help us ensure that a child’s place of birth does not ensure his or her trajectory in life. We need you, as a philanthropic partner.

Philanthropic funds are necessary to meet the goals of the Rales Center and will allow us to establish a long-term plan for sustaining this program. Philanthropic partnerships allow us to expand successful programs to other schools across Baltimore City, demonstrate new knowledge, and further develop our long-term plan for sustaining the model. Your donation will benefit thousands of Baltimore children, setting them on the path toward healthier, more prosperous and fulfilling lives. Funding opportunities exist at every level.

To lend your support, or discuss your role in improving children’s health, academic performance and lifelong prospects, contact Alicia Cleaver, associate director of development at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center 410-361-6396. You can give online now, or mail a check along with this form to Alicia Cleaver, associate director of development, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, 750 E. Pratt Street, Suite 1700, Baltimore, MD 21202.
