We envision a Maryland where every student has the opportunity to imagine, to create, and to realize their full potential through the arts. We know that the arts are a powerful tool for decreasing the achievement gap between low-income students and their more affluent peers. Learning through the arts provides all students with opportunities to realize their leadership, their creativity, and their resilience – exactly what companies are looking for in today’s and tomorrow’s employees.
We are excited to announce new sponsorship opportunities. Funds raised through sponsorships will directly support the Summer Arts & Learning Academy – a free, full-day, five-week summer program for Pre-K – 5th grade students enrolled in Baltimore City public schools. Serving as a sponsor provides an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your commitment to the arts and to education while increasing the visibility of your company. View our sponsorship opportunities and visibility benefits here.
