FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 31, 2012
The College of Southern Maryland Foundation has been added to the more than 4,400 approved organizations recognized through Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) which includes Calvert and Charles counties and the St. Mary’s County Federal Campaign (STMCFC). The campaigns give federal employees in the Washington, D.C. metro area and St. Mary’s County the opportunity to designate organizations that most align with needs they feel are most important when making charitable contributions. Participating organizations must meet federal legal requirements and OPM (Office of Personnel Management) regulations to be included in the campaigns.
“The Combined Federal Campaign is the nation’s largest and most successful workplace fundraising program designed to give federal employees a system where they can support the non-profit organizations closest to their hearts—and we are delighted that we can be a part of this tradition of giving,” said CSM Development Director Martina Arnold.
The CSM Foundation provides more than $150,000 in scholarships funds each year to students based on financial need. Supporting the CFC allows Southern Maryland residents who wish to attend CSM the ability to get on a pathway to success in the areas of workforce development training, healthcare, STEM, hospitality, the arts, business administration and other credit and non credit programs.
The CFCNCA campaign begins Sept. 1 and concludes Dec. 15; the STMCFC campaign begins Oct. 25 and concludes Dec. 6. To designate the CSM Foundation for charitable contributions, select no. 22768 on the CFCNCA or STMCFC application. For information on the CFCNCA campaign, visit http://cfcnca.org/.
