One of the most important ways you can get involved is to fundraise for our programs, so that we are able to continue providing year-round programs to newcomer youth in Baltimore & PG County, and expand our programs to serve even more youth! There are plenty of ways in which an individual or a group can fundraise for our programs. Please see below for ideas specific to different types of fundraisers. You can also check out our Success Snapshots for more information about how past partners have designed their fundraising campaigns for SWB!

If you are 23 years of age or under, and your fundraising efforts are tied to physical activity, your fundraising efforts can be doubled through our matching grant partnership with Positive Tracks! Find out more about our Ambassador Program here!
