The generosity that is a hallmark of this community helped the CSM Foundation raise nearly $120,000 for student scholarships and programs on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28. The chamber’s donation supports the CSM Foundation’s “Make An Impact” campaign of $12 million to benefit the college’s transformative three-year outreach and fundraising effort that will culminate in 2018 with the college’s 60th anniversary. Scholarships are a key component of CSM’s efforts to help students succeed. The CSM Foundation manages annual and endowed scholarships, which allow the college to plan for the future and ensure that scholarship funds are available for an award every year. Over the past five years, the foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships. For information on scholarships at CSM, visit http://foundation.csmd.edu.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
