Congratulations Impact Fund Winners!
Arts Every Day (AED) awards $20,000 to five Baltimore City Public Schools to implement outcome based art projects that will have a long-term educational impact on their students and surrounding community. All Arts Every Day schools were invited to apply and the final recipients were chosen by a committee of local art and design leaders in late February 2017.
Cecil Elementary School's proposed exterior mural with artists Ronnie Younts and Greg Gannon
The Impact Fund is an additional funding source opportunity for AED's 40 school partners. Starting in 2014, AED has offered project based funds to our partner schools to provide teachers an avenue to use the arts as a source of community building, healing, and understanding. With the generous support of Point Breeze Credit UnionThe Dock Street Foundation, and our growing family of individual donors, AED was able to expand our award to five partner schools in 2017.  
Stay tuned for community work days and unveiling event dates! Learn more about the Impact Fund recipients below or visit our website here.
