Arts Every Day is proud to support Fine Arts Teachers districtwide.  Launched in 2018 with a generous, multi-year commitment from MECU Credit Union, the Arts Equipment Fund provides vital support to Fine Arts classrooms across Baltimore City. 

For the 2021-22 School Year, Arts Every Day will fund a total of $30,000 in instruments and equipment purchase to support the expansion of Fine Arts instruction. With traditional schools receiving federal ESSER dollars to support Fine Arts expansion, AED will prioritize schools (charter/contract) that are ineligible for Baltimore City’s ESSER allocation. 


  • Baltimore City Public School (Charter schools prioritized) 
  • Must have a certified Fine Arts Teacher on staff
  • Schools may request up to $5,000 for the purchase of musical instruments and equipment, i.e. marly floor, kilns, dance ballet bars, choir risers, drying racks, etc. 

Consumable materials are NOT eligible (paper, glue, scissors, etc.)
