Connecting our communities

When Johns Hopkins bequeathed $7 million to create a hospital and university, he did so to benefit the city where he spent most of his life. Nearly 140 years later, Johns Hopkins remains steadfast in its commitment to Baltimore. As part of his Ten by Twenty initiative, President Ronald J. Daniels has made enhancing and enriching our ties to the community one of his top priorities.

We like to say that we’re not just in Baltimore, but we are truly and proudly of Baltimore. Here are just a few examples of how we’re making a difference:
