Mission Statement

The BWI Community Development Foundation (also known as “The Partnership Foundation”) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2008 that exists to transform and revitalize the central Maryland region by supporting and implementing initiatives within its strategic focus areas.

Our Strategic Focus Areas: Transportation, economic, community, and workforce development, education, hospitality, tourism, and local military support.

Donations and grants to The Partnership Foundation underwrite our work. Currently The Partnership Foundation manages a free County Connector Shuttle in Anne Arundel County for job seekers and employees, and a Roadside Beautification program around the Arundel Mills Mall, Live! Casino & Hotel area. Both programs are funded by the Local Development Council (LDC). The Partnership Foundation also raises funds for the BWI Marshall Airport Summer Youth Initiative program.
