ABOUT TODAY’S GUEST
The Baltimore Legacy Builders Collective (The Collective) is a group of Black-led organizations collaborating to provide 100 plus hours of training, transferable skills & empowerment to 1,300 youth and young adults in the greater Baltimore area. In late 2019, The Collective secured funding from the T. Rowe Price Foundation to hire a Chief Development Officer (CDO) which is a shared fundraising resource across the three organizations and for The Collective in order to help build capacity and ensure sustainability. Through this partnership, The Collective will empower other community-based organizations to build capacity and replicate this “shared CDO” model with both technical support to cohorts and direct funding to a select group.
The Collective is comprised of the following Black-led organizations:
The Be. Org, Founded by Tonee Lawson
I am MENtality, Founded by Darren Rodgers
B-360, Founded by Brittany Young
