Incorporated in 1972 in MD - In 1972, leaders of Baltimore's five major banks of that time joined together to establish the Community Foundation of the Greater Baltimore Area. Inspired by the success of the nation's first community foundation in Cleveland, Ohio, and a rapidly growing network of community foundations nationwide, co-founder Robert H. Levi of Mercantile-Safe Deposit and Trust, who would become the fledgling organization's first chairman, felt strongly that Baltimore needed "a philanthropic organization that was a gathering of all people--no color line, no religious affiliation, no special cause."
