A September 25 Maryland Reporter article announces that Greg Cantori will be taking over as President of Maryland Nonprofits next week. The article also discusses the role nonprofits play in delivering services at the state and local government levels:
State and local agencies make heavy use of nonprofits to deliver social, health, housing and educational services. For instance, most of the $876 million that the state spends to take care of people with developmental disabilities is funneled through nonprofit groups.
The Governor’s Grants Office and the Maryland Association of Counties recently cooperated on a survey that found county governments gave $78 million in grants to more than 1,100 nonprofit agencies, including $32 million to more than 200 in Baltimore City.
Overall, nonprofits in Maryland, which include most hospitals and private universities, employ about 260,000 people, 11% of total employment.
