The Blackwing Foundation was founded in 2013 by Charles and Ginger Berolzheimer with the goal to develop and support innovative partnerships that have a sustainable, positive impact on arts and music participation and learning at the K-12 educational level.
To this end, the Foundation works to:
- Enable unique partnerships to design and implement programs which have a beneficial and lasting impact on students and schools
- Focus on supporting high-quality programs that not only inspire students, but develop their knowledge and skills and connect to important curricular objectives
- Expand breadth of programs to cover a growing range of arts and music genres as our resources and new partnership opportunities develop over time
- Help empower local communities to build self-sustaining advocacy efforts and commitment to funding of a widespread arts and music curriculum in their schools.
