In total, the foundation donated $95,000 to six Baltimore-area nonprofits, including the Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore, which received $15,000 “for Club Tech, which teaches technology skills through interactive projects and activities and provides basic technology education and computer skills to club members,” according to the release.
