The Campaign for Baltimore’s Heroes

The Campaign is dedicated to raising funds for the multiple organizations helping to build a brighter future for Baltimore. This year, we met our $250K milestone in our goal to raise $1,000,000 for these organizations. Times have been difficult, but with the unwavering support of our network of leaders, changemakers, and alumni we can continue to strengthen our commitment to Baltimore. Join in contributing to our diverse network of people, programs, investors, and ideas making our city shine!

The Homecoming Hero Awards

Rowe Price, recognizes and celebrates remarkable Baltimore City heroes—community and nonprofit leaders, activists, artists and innovators—who are building a brighter future for Baltimore. Organizations participating in the Campaign for Baltimore’s Heroes include those of the community leaders nominated, voted, and chosen by the Baltimore community.
