Office of External Affairs

Mission Statement for Baltimore

The Office of External Affairs includes Development, Communications and Marketing,Constituent and Alumni Relations, and Finance and Operations. All four teams are committed to bringing their collective skills and expertise to engage, promote, and deepen the Bloomberg School’s relationships with constituents we work with and serve, including the Baltimore community where we have been based since the School’s founding in 1916.


OEA, in collaboration with SOURCE, provides capacity-building assistance to the professional staff of a small cohort of Baltimore City organizations through a one-day intensive training and yearlong mentoring program in the areas of fundraising, marketing and communications, and board development.

To qualify, organizations must primarily serve Baltimore City residents and have a minimum of one full-time equivalent staff person dedicated to fundraising and marketing/communications. Only SOURCE-partnering community-based organizations are eligible to participate in the program. Applications open in early fall each year.

For a list of past participants and sample workshop content, please visit OEA’s Nonprofit 360 page.
