Do you ever wonder how you can help others?
Today we have a special treat: a Morgan State University connection! Dr. Geneva speaks to fellow alumnus Matthew Reeds, millennial philanthropist and founder of the Reeds Fund, about how to turn your enthusiasm into ways to help others.
The Reeds Fund is a Baltimore-based not-for-profit that educates, advocates, and liberates families impacted by autism and sarcoidosis.
After experiencing inadequacies within Baltimore, Maryland’s healthcare system first-hand, Reeds took action. He aims to destigmatize those who struggle with these issues, inform others who may be unaware of them, and fight against the socio-economic barriers that prevent many from receiving care.
Reeds is also a proud alumnus of the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. He is a strong and youthful force in Baltimore in philanthropy, business, and community service.
Matthew Reeds' inspiring story will motivate you all to take action and use life’s circumstances to make a difference in the lives of others.
