The CM Education Foundation is a community-based, non-profit corporation that has as its sole mission “support for Central Maine Community College and its students.” The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of community and business leaders. The Foundation has raised and contributed more than $800,000 to the college for scholarships, program improvements and capital projects. In addition to an annual fund campaign, the Foundation holds an annual dinner and co-hosts the annual Scholarship Scramble with the Androscoggin Chamber of Commerce.
The Foundation Board of Directors also serves as the Executive Advisory Council, providing a forum for matters that have a broad impact on the College. Specific responsibilities of the Council include reviewing proposals for major changes in policies and programs, participating in the development of long range plans, and assisting with the interpretation of College goals, programs and needs to the general public.
