Business law firm creates fund for city schools

A local, prominent business law firm announced this week, a five-year, $500,000 commitment to a new funding stream for Baltimore city schools.

In celebrating its 25th anniversary, Rosenberg Martin Greenberg LP established the continuing fund--meaning it will be a permanent charitable endowment--through the Baltimore Community Foundation, the longtime stewards of philanthropic, charitable investments in the Baltimore community.

The two organizations also announced that two city schools partners--New Leaders for New Schools and Access Art-- would received $12,500 grant awards from the continuing fund.

Access Art is an award-winning after-school arts and media center that empowers more than 100 young people each year to use their artistic abilities as tools for social change. New Leaders develops new leadership talent, and city schools recruits new principals from the organization every year.
