BALTIMORE, Dec. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guinness Open Gate Brewery announces today the full details of its Guinness Gives Back Baltimore Community Fund, a million dollar commitment to support three key focus areas in the Baltimore region's Black community: economic justice, community empowerment, and equal representation. The contributions will support the Visit Baltimore Education and Training Foundation, Reginald F. Lewis Museum, Job Opportunities Task Force, Maryland Food Bank and Baltimore Action Legal Team. Guinness previously announced the initial commitment in June of this year.
"Our team has spent months researching ways to do the most good with these funds, consulting local advisors and building a strategic framework to pay it forward, as both a neighbor and champion of change in the Baltimore region, delivering meaningful impact and sustainable support for the Black community," said Jennifer Hudson, Director at Diageo Beer Company. "Guinness has always been 'made of more' and, as the home of Guinness in America, genuine give back efforts are in our DNA. The Baltimore region has warmly welcomed our team since opening the Guinness Gates just two years ago and we're honored to support such worthy causes in the fight for equity."
