Thank you M&T and Baltimore RAVENS!
May 21, 2014
M&T Bank and the Baltimore Ravens have announced a 10-year, $60 million extension of their partnership, which includes the continuation of naming rights to M&T Bank Stadium and an array of community-focused programs, including a new initiative focused on helping at-risk children in Baltimore.
The Ravens and M&T will provide a total of $600,000 in funding for a “Judy Center” – an early childhood resource center which provides comprehensive services for children under age five and their families. The new Judy Center will be located at an elementary school in the Cherry Hill section of Baltimore City and is being organized through the Baltimore Community Foundation.
“We are thrilled that the Ravens and M&T are joining BCF in its goal to have 90 percent of Baltimore’s children ready for school by 2017,” said Tom Wilcox, president of the Baltimore Community Foundation. “M&T and the Ravens’ financial commitment to our program will have a dramatic impact on these children and our school system, leveling the playing field for our children as they enter school.”
