The Conservancy Board has committed to raising $12,000,000 from public and private sources for the implementation of the Mount Vernon Place Master Plan. Current fundraising focuses on Phase I of the Master Plan, the restoration of the Washington Monument and ornamental cast iron fence, and Phase II, the rehabilitation of the North and South Park Squares.
MVPC’s Board of Directors launched the campaign with a collective contribution of $536,000. Government sources are helping to leverage private contributions: The City of Baltimore has contributed $1,000,000, and Governor O’Malley has pledged $3,000,000 from his capital budget.
Generous and caring supporters, together with the Department of Recreation and Parks, understand that a public-private partnership is the only realistic approach to restoring and maintaining this iconic Baltimore symbol for future generations.
