Heart of the School Awards and Principal Support Fund

Together with Baltimore City Public Schools as well as business, foundation and community partners, the Fund serves as host of the annual Heart of the School Awards to celebrate all Baltimore City Public Schools’ Principals. This special night also recognizes five exceptional leaders who have demonstrated exemplary innovation, execution, and leadership, building strong school cultures.

The 3rd annual Heart of the Schools Awards celebration will take place on May 21st at the historic Hippodrome Theatre.  Click here to purchase tickets or make a donation.

Proceeds from the event, along with a number of generous targeted gifts, support the Principal Support Fund which provides grants to City Schools principals for innovative projects and opportunities through the Principal Support Fund. Since July, 2016, we have awarded over $230,000 in grants to more than 60 City Schools principals for projects that benefit their students and schools, such as professional development, events, and vital resources.
