Each year, individuals and businesses make donations to the United Way of Central Maryland, many designate those donations to The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools. For more than 90 years, United Way has worked with leading health and human service providers across the region to identify the most effective strategies to improve the lives of families in poverty. United Way of Central Maryland works with local partners to support health and human services that help people to overcome crisis, stay out of poverty and achieve high-quality, self-sufficient lives.  Your support can make an impact helping families throughout central Maryland and within Baltimore County who are facing poverty to obtain access to housing, healthy affordable food and health care and quality education.

If you are a Baltimore County Public Schools employee, you have until December 23, 2016, to consider a donation to those in need.  When choosing your United Way recipient, please consider selecting The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools, Inc., using designated code #5910.
