Welcome from the President

Welcome to the USM Foundation website!

The USM Foundation completed its second strategic plan, which further defines our commitment to building a culture of philanthropy through the USM and its leadership. I hope this website is a positive reflection of the professionalism and scope of our work.

I invite you to read more about Our Mission & Strategic Plan and learn about Our Services and Who We Serve. The USM Foundation has a long History, and part of that history includes Connecting with the Community of students, faculty, and staff across our campuses. See what upcoming Events we are hosting: you may want to attend one! Or read what News has been happening at our campuses. Give a Gift to one of our institutions and learn more about what your gift can do to change someone's life.

We have worked especially hard to make sure that the USM Foundation website gives our Administrators & Clients and Board Members easy access to the information they need, while allowing visitors to understand more about us. Some of our pages are password protected as material contained on those pages are specific to those audiences, but I encourage you to explore and learn more about our Committees and just how the USM Foundation governs its Policies & Procedures.

It is my pleasure to serve as the President and CEO of the USM Foundation, and it is my hope that you will see exactly what it is that makes the University System of Maryland and our Foundation so special.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

Leonard Raley
