List of Our Supporters

The Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance thanks the following organizations for their support:

SAUL ZAENTZ CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

We have a personal interest in ensuring that the greater Baltimore region remains a vibrant place for all families to live and thrive. Baltimore’s great strengths include outstanding cultural institutions and universities, along with diverse neighborhoods. To build on and complement these strengths, we work to anchor middle class communities by supporting them through grants to Jewish institutions, cultural and educational organizations, libraries, green spaces, and community groups in various neighborhoods. We are also mindful of our responsibility to help support those striving to move out of poverty by funding organizations that provide food assistance, job training and low cost recreation to our citizens.

THE PECK FOUNDATION

We are a small family foundation interested in fostering vibrant, livable communities where individuals have access to the arts and opportunities to engage in positive change. We do this by seeking out creative arts programs, neighborhood revitalization projects and community engagement initiatives. Our favorite projects are the ones that combine these elements in a way that brings people of all ages together and helps to create a sense of belonging and mutual respect. And you should know that because we’re a small foundation, we prefer to reach out to nonprofits to initiate a conversation.
