November 16, 1999

In honor of National Philanthropy Day yesterday, the Maryland Chapter of the National Society of Fund Raising Executives recognized a Baltimore philanthropist, a foundation and students at four schools for their charitable work.

Suzanne F. Cohen, a member of numerous local nonprofit boards, was named philanthropist of the year for her support of institutions like Goucher College and her work creating the Safe and Sound campaign, a program to improve life and reduce violence for Baltimore children with after-school programs and other initiatives.

The Marion I. and Henry J. Knott Foundation was named outstanding philanthropic foundation. Students from Holy Redeemer School in East Baltimore, Dumbarton Middle School in Stoneleigh, Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, and Goucher College also were recognized for volunteer fund-raising work.
