Tragedy Highlights Need for Emergency Relief and Recovery Funds

Two funds have been created by tronc, Inc. to honor the lives of Gerald Fischman, Robert Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith, and Wendi Winters, the five employees that were killed during the tragic shooting at the Capital Gazette on June 29, 2018.
 
The Capital Gazette Families Fund will provide immediate relief and long-term recovery support to employees and immediate family members of employees of the Capital Gazette, as well as employees across the company who have been directly affected by tragedy. Grants can be applied to grief and trauma counseling, medical expenses not covered by insurance, funeral expenses, and other associated expenses and services.
 
The Capital Gazette Memorial Scholarship Fund has been created to provide an annual award for select students pursuing a degree in Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park. 
 
This tragedy has united our community. Overwhelming support has been felt from across the country and around the world. Donations to the Capital Gazette Families Fund have exceeded $550,000, before the match from the Michael and Jacky Ferro Family Foundation.
 
Grants have already been distributed to families for funeral-related expenses. A grants distribution committee comprised of independent experts and community volunteers is developing the criteria for long-term recovery support.

Arts & Culture Anne Arundel Fund

The Arts & Culture Anne Arundel Fund was created to enhance the vibrancy and creativity of Anne Arundel County by offering access to arts and cultural activities for all residents. In helping to strengthen arts and culture nonprofits in the county through the Maryland Nonprofits Standards for Excellence Institute, the Arts & Culture Standards for Excellence Cohort was born. In 2017, in partnership with the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County, eleven nonprofits were selected to participate in an 18-month collaborative training program designed to help nonprofit organizations meet these high benchmarks: Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Arts District, Annapolis Film Festival, Annapolis Maritime Museum, Chesapeake Arts Center, Creative Performing Arts of South County, Encore Creativity for Older Adults, Maryland Federation of Art, Maryland Hall, Maryland Concert Series, and The Musical Autist.
