Working To Enhance The Quality Of Life
In Baltimore And In Maryland.

We support programs that seek to preserve Maryland's ecologically significant and endangered natural resources, and advocate for clean air and water. 

Protection and preservation of Maryland’s abundant natural resources is critical to promoting a healthy and sustainable environment, society and economy in the state.  Partnering with the public and private sectors, the Abell Foundation supports programs aimed at promoting air and water quality, preserving undeveloped land, and protecting the Chesapeake Bay, in Baltimore and across the state.  The Foundation supports efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, with a particular focus on the development of renewable energy.  In all of its work in support of a cleaner and healthier environment in Maryland, the Foundation seeks to ensure environmental health and justice in underserved communities.
