Community support has been a key factor in our college's ability to provide high quality, low cost education and related services for over four decades. To gain sustainable support for scholarship programs, physical plant needs, and future initiatives, our three foundations - Allegany College of Maryland Foundation, the Bedford County Regional Education Foundation and the Somerset County Campus Foundation for Allegany College of Maryland - are led by dedicated boards of directors and staffed by fundraising professionals.
Our foundations encourage the growth, progress and general welfare of the college by soliciting and accepting private tax-deductible gifts, bequests and donations from our local community and beyond. In turn, our foundations then manage and disburse those donations.
Each Foundation is composed of representatives of business, education, the professions and the general community who have demonstrated positive leadership and who have an expressed interest and desire in using their influence on behalf of the college.. Tax deductibles gifts to our foundations are always welcome!
