Make a difference with a donation.
Your gift will change the life of a family in Southwest Baltimore!
When Paul's Place Can Count On You, Families in Southwest Baltimore Can Count on Us!
Poverty, homelessness, unemployment, inadequate education, addiction, crime, and violence…children and adults in Southwest Baltimore face these and other adversities every day of their lives. When families are on their own, these burdens can become too heavy to bear, immobilizing, and isolating.
Your gift makes a big difference.
Your gift will make a meaningful difference for children and adults – giving them hope and the resources they need to become stable and self-reliant and to achieve their full potential.
Your donation will provide a steady, reliable stream of support so that, together, we can help families respond to immediate needs and find long-term solutions. Help us improve the quality of lives in Southwest Baltimore.

What you need to know
Our Tax ID Number
Our tax identification number may be required when you recommend a grant from your donor advised fund, donate distributions from your IRA, or designate Paul’s Place as a beneficiary in your estate plans. It is 52-1372359.
Through planned giving, individuals are able to arrange gifts to be made at a future date, helping to support the long-term goals of Paul’s Place. Planned giving may also provide tax benefits to you now, to your estate and even provide income throughout your lifetime.
Donating From your IRA
The charitable IRA rollover may be a great option for you if you pay federal income tax on unneeded, but required distributions from your traditional IRA, even if you do not itemize deductions on your taxes. Here’s how it works: once you reach 70 1/2 years, you can make gifts of up to $100,000 per year to qualified charitable organizations, like Paul’s Place, directly from your IRA.
