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

You are here


We support programs that seek to address public health challenges stemming from pollution of our water and air which often disproporationately burden communities of color, increase awareness of Maryland's ecologically significant and endangered natural resources, and advocate for jobs in the clean energy sector. 

Protection and preservation of Maryland’s abundant natural resources is critical to promoting a healthy and sustainable environment, society and economy in the state.  The Abell Foundation supports programs aimed at improving air and water quality and addressing environmental threats in Baltimore.  The Foundation supports efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, with a particular focus on the development of renewable energy and creation of clean energy jobs.  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.
