The Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund was created in 2007 to support nonprofit organizations that both serve the communities in close proximity to Hopkins campuses and are associated with Johns Hopkins through employee or institutional involvement.
The Neighborhood Fund uses pledge donations made through JHU’s United Way campaign to help local nonprofit organizations build stronger neighborhoods by addressing needs in areas of:
- Community revitalization
- Public safety
In addition to serving these needs, organizations that receive funding must provide services within pre-designated geographic boundaries, agree to use or return funds by the end of the fiscal year, and comply with other disbursement and reporting requirements.
