Upcoming Webinar

Nonprofit organizations matter to Maryland—they address critical community needs, advance the quality of life of Marylanders, and are a powerhouse for economic impact. In recent weeks and months, nonprofits have quickly adapted to meet the needs of their communities while working to sustain themselves.

Join the BTU partnerships team for a series of conversations that highlight area partners working beside TU faculty and staff to create positive impacts in our community.

A conversation with T. Rowe Price Foundation
Wednesday, May 27, 12–1 p.m.

On May 27, Melanie Kelleher, director of corporate relations at TU, will interview John Brothers and Sabrina Thornton from the T. Rowe Price Foundation. Their discussion will cover the impact of COVID-19 on corporate giving, T. Rowe Price’s response to the crisis, and how corporate philanthropy will change in light of these challenging times.

Learn how the T. Rowe Price Foundation was able to quickly pivot to support the Baltimore community and how corporate philanthropic resources can enhance your organization’s disaster preparedness efforts during the COVID-19 process and beyond.
