Celebrate Peabody Founder's Week 2020

This campaign ended on February 16, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Johns Hopkins University by clicking here!

The Peabody Institute’s Founder’s Week honors the legacy of George Peabody, with a focus on the arts, philanthropy, and community engagement in Baltimore City. Founder’s Week is intended to honor Peabody’s rich history while shining a light on our vision for the future, rooted in the 5 Pillars of the Breakthrough Plan.

The Peabody Institute was founded in 1857 with a bequest given by the institute’s namesake, George Peabody. George Peabody believed in the power of the artist to enrich the lives of others and The Peabody Institute remains the practical embodiment of this belief, to this day.

By making a gift during Founder’s Week, you are directly supporting the success of our students as 21st Century Performing Artists, partnerships throughout Baltimore City, our renowned and talented faculty, and much, much more.

We invite you to tell us how your Peabody experience prepared you to Break Through in your career, life, and performing arts passion. Share your story with us online and learn more about how Peabody continues to Break Through at peabody.jhu.edu/foundersweek.
