CM Education Foundation
The Central Maine Community College Foundation, or 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 made up of community and business leaders. The Foundation has contributed over $1.2 million dollars to CMCC for scholarships, program improvements and capital projects.
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.
Message from the Chair
As Chair of the CM Foundation Board of Directors, I am privileged to work with a dedicated group of staff and Foundation board members who are committed to making higher education more accessible to members of our community.
I also have the privilege of getting to know some our students. I hear their stories and I know where they’ve come from and what goals they’ve set for themselves. Many of our students are first-generation college students; many have families of their own and hold full-time jobs. Our students are here because they want a better life for themselves and their families.
I am honored to be a small part of helping make those dreams become reality and I urge you to consider your own participation. As you browse through the Foundation website, I invite you to learn more about the College and to consider partnering with us as we work to meet the challenges that lay ahead. Together we can make a difference in education in Central Maine!
