Among the Baltimore Ravens' current charitable partners:

Reading Partners Baltimore: Reading Partners places community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading. By partnering with Baltimore community members and leaders from local school districts, government, corporations, community organizations, universities, churches, and more, Reading Partners is mobilizing the people who care about Baltimore’s children to give back to local schools in a meaningful way. The ultimate goal is a future where every child in Baltimore has the support they need to become strong readers and lifelong learners.

Bridges – Bridges is an academic and cultural enrichment program for Baltimore City youth that enables long-term student success inside and outside of school. Baltimore City students enter either Bridges at St. Paul’s School or Bridges at Gilman as early as the summer after third grade and stay involved in programming (various summer, school time and mentoring opportunities) through the end of high school.

Playworks Maryland - The mission of Playworks is to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. The 2014-15 school year marks the 10th year of Playworks in Maryland, with the program expanding to 24 Baltimore-area schools, providing approximately 11,000 students with the opportunity to engage in healthy, inclusive play and physical activity each school day.
