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 that also serves as the College’s Education Advisory Council, providing input on matters that have a broad impact on the College.
The Foundation has raised and contributed more than 1.2 million dollars 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 Chip Morrison Scholarship Scramble with the L-A Metro Chamber of Commerce.
