The Ripken Foundation appreciates its partnership with BGE and is proud to be selected as their Cause Initiative in 2019. Together, BGE and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation have helped at-risk youth throughout Maryland by providing character education programming and positive adult law enforcement mentors through our Badges for Baseball program. We also built the Eddie Murray Field at BGE Park in West Baltimore to provide a clean and safe place for kids to play and learn. And in 2019 BGE will support the next Ripken multi-purpose field project in the Cherry Hill community in Baltimore. If you learned about us through BGE, please select BGE Cause Initiative listed under the Giving Options drop-down menu.
