How Can We Help?
Director, Baker Fund Grants Program
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.
