Binghamton Arts and Athletics Community Fund

About the Binghamton Arts and Athletics Community Fund

Downtown Binghamton intersectionThe City of Binghamton is my hometown and is also home to 50% of the elementary school population living in poverty.  The goal of the Binghamton Arts & Athletics Community Fund (BAAC) is to provide greater access to the Arts & Athletics while bringing awareness to the community of the benefits they have in the development and overall well-being of children.  Both sports and art programs offer many benefits to help prepare children for future success.
