The CSM Foundation also received a $100,000 donation from Community Bank of the Chesapeake. The funds are part of a five-year pledge for a permanent endowment fund and an annual scholarship fund that supports both credit and workforce development students.

To recognize the donation, CSM will name a conference room (Room BU 202) in the Business Building at the La Plata Campus and the lobby in the new Center for Trades and Energy Training at the Regional Hughesville Campus in the Community Bank of the Chesapeake’s honor.

Community Bank of the Chesapeake is a full-service commercial bank with headquarters in Southern Maryland, with assets over $1 billion. Through its 12 banking centers and five dedicated commercial lending centers, Community Bank of the Chesapeake offers a range of financial products and services to individuals and businesses.

The CSM Foundation has launched a transformative three-year outreach and fundraising effort that will culminate in 2018 with the college’s 60th anniversary. “Make Your Impact: Invest Today to Transform Tomorrow” addresses access, affordability and achievement by ensuring that degree programs and career training are available to everyone through scholarships, that high caliber programs, facilities and technology are accessible, and that strategic partnerships and innovation are created and sustained in the community.
