What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Maryland Philanthropy Network

Maryland Philanthropy Network acts as an organizing backbone and convener bringing funders and partners together to promote alignment and action around issues affecting communities across Maryland.

We design educational programming to meet the needs of trustees, executive and professional philanthropic staff at every level of engagement and stage of career and seek to extend the capacity of our members.

We provide a responsive infrastructure that connects funders to address emerging issues, policy shifts, and current events impacting our state and engage grantseekers to strengthen the connection between philanthropy, nonprofits, and social sector innovators.

We support dialogue, workshops, and events that raise awareness of systemic, structural and institutional racism to inform our community of funders and the social sector at large – and motivate intentional actions as institutions, organizations, and individuals to undo racism in our policies, practices and lives.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
