INVESTING

IN THE COMMUNITY

Each year Baltimore Sun Media selects a deserving non-profit to receive a percent of net proceeds from the Hall of Fame event. We have selected  The Greater Baltimore Urban League for this year's non-profit. 

 

​​The mission of the Greater Baltimore Urban League movement is to enable African Americans and other minorities to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights. 

 

GBUL’s three-pronged strategy for pursuing their mission is:

•Ensuring that children are well-educated and equipped for economic self-reliance

•Helping adults attain economic self-sufficiency through good jobs, home ownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation

•Ensuring civil rights by eradicating all barriers to equal participation in the economic and social mainstream of America

The Greater Baltimore Urban League movement carries out its mission through direct services, advocacy, research, policy analysis, community mobilization, collaboration and communications.
