Our History

The Joshua M. Freeman Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was established in 2007 to honor Josh Freeman, the former Chair of the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, after his untimely death in December of 2006. The Joshua M. Freeman Foundation seeks to honor Josh’s passion and commitment to excellence by creating programs that he would have been proud of. With The Freeman Stage at Bayside, an outdoor performing arts venue located near Fenwick Island, DE, we act on that mission by providing unique arts experiences to over 50,000 visitors a year.
