    About Suzanne F. Cohen

    Suzanne F. Cohen, a renowned philanthropist, leader within the Jewish community, patron of the arts and champion of important and just causes, died on Nov. 19, 2018.

    Her wisdom, deep concern and passion for enhancing numerous organizations and the entire Baltimore community were truly legendary. A past board chair and honorary trustee of the Baltimore Museum of Art, one of Cohen’s proudest philanthropic achievements came in 2006, when she donated $1 million to the BMA to establish an endowment to ensure free admission to the museum for all – forever.

    By virtue of her decades of leadership skills and philanthropic endeavors, Cohen was honored by countless organizations. Among her honors, she was named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by The Daily Record Circle of Excellence three times.

    She was a mentor and friend to many.

    This fund was created in her name to recognize her lifetime desire to create social equity through expanding access to education, the arts, cultural resources and creative opportunities.
