The 360 Group is very excited to announce that Dr. Shanaysha Sauls has become the next CEO of the Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF). The 360 Group was thrilled to be selected to lead this vitally important search; beyond a strong affinity for Baltimore, we knew that at this moment in Baltimore’s history, finding the right leader that could guide BCF’s new strategic direction was absolutely paramount. Our extensive national search began last summer and generated both regional and national attention and media coverage.
Dr. Sauls is the first person of color to lead the 45-year-old Baltimore Community Foundation, and the first woman to serve as CEO. Sauls is an educator with a personal and professional passion for improving lives and communities. She has served since 2015 as Chief Executive Officer & Operator for the Foundation for the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, recently featured in the Sundance award-winning film “Step”. Her prior professional experience ranges from consulting on strategic direction and marketing for colleges and universities to teaching political theory at American University to teaching English in Baltimore area high schools.
