Alison Rose Tunis Fund
Show more (+)

This fund was established by Sean Tunis and Nancy Kass in honor of their daughter Alison, who was born on March 25, 1994 and died May 6, 1994 of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Even as a little baby, Alison seemed like a little dancer, moving her hands and legs around in the air. The fund supports bringing performing artists into city schools to do participatory workshops with children, grades K-5. To enable young children to have fun with music and dance seemed a fitting way of keeping the spirit of Alison-the-little-dancer alive, not just in memory, but in a very real way.

Arthur W. Elder, II, Scholarship Fund
Show more (+)

The Arthur W. Elder, II Scholarship is established to honor the memory and spirit of a man who died young at heart.  Arthur II passed away on December 17, 2009, after battling lung cancer even though he was not a smoker. 
Arthur was a renaissance man who was liked by everyone.  He could strike up a conversation with anyone.  He believed in the power of education and was a voracious reader.   Arthur had a remarkable memory for trivia, sports facts, and could tell a story with the best of them.   
Arthur played baseball for his neighborhood, Red Wing Baseball Athletic League, listened to music with the Left Bank Jazz Society, and as a hometown sports enthusiast, rooted for the Orioles and Ravens whether they were winning or losing.
This scholarship honors his belief in education.  The first scholarship was awarded in 2011 to a Baltimore City student from his Alma Mater, Lake Clifton High School, now named Heritage High School.
