Mission Statement

The Baltimore CASH-Creating Assets, Savings, & Hope-Campaign strives to provide working families access to the tools and services needed to maximize their earning dollars.

Description

The Baltimore CASH Campaign--Creating Assets, Savings and Hope--was formed in the fall of 2001 to implement strategies to increase financial stability opportunities for low-income Baltimore families. The campaign is the work of a coalition that includes foundations, nonprofits, community-based organizations, workforce development agencies, Baltimore City government, the Internal Revenue Service, and hundreds of volunteers. The campaign focuses on "making work pay" by leveraging the tax code as a gateway to financial services for working families.

The campaign:

1. Conducts marketing and outreach about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other relevant tax credits for low-income workers;

2. Provides free volunteer income tax assistance (VITA) to help low and moderate income families file tax returns and claim the EITC;

3. Develops financial security opportunities for clients through financial education workshops, partnerships with financial institutions, and other asset development services; and

4. Advocates for issues impacting working families.
