Nonprofit a source of ready money for city officials

A Baltimore Sun investigation reveals that a little-known private nonprofit group formed to primarily benefit city programs for the underprivileged is a source of money-on-demand for city government officials with almost no oversight. City employees wield broad discretion over how money is spent from the Baltimore City Foundation and the foundation asks few questions. The newspaper found that some of the money goes to projects having little or nothing to do with the group's tax-exempt purposes. According to legal and nonprofit experts, this is a potential violation of Internal Revenue Service rules.
