Welcome to the new USM Foundation website!

It has been a long time coming, and we are so pleased to be able to share the rewards of our hard work with you.

We had a dedicated team of staff members who collaborated to ensure this site had everything we wanted and everything our users had been asking for over the last few years. We also had a highly skilled team of web designers at Fastspot working with us to execute our vision and make it come live. We are so thrilled with the results and hope you are too.

Some of the features we wanted to emphasize in the building of a new site were to give our board members and campus administrators more flexibility in using the site. Our board members are now able to access their meeting materials and see upcoming board meetings directly through their homepage once logged in to the site. They can also update their own profiles to more accurately reflect the accolades and accomplishments taking place in their lives. Our administrators will be able to access more features electronically and digitally - we are working on putting together training videos on how to use our Financial Edge software for our administrators, as well as making the Disbursement Request Form electronic for immediate submission. 

We also wanted to share the achievements taking place through our System by highlighting the news at each campus. If you visit our News page, you will see we have news from each campus that is updated daily. 

There is a lot to see and do on this new website, and we encourage you to explore. Find out about our history and how we got to where we are today. Hear our president speak and explain what it is we do here at the USM Foundation. Discover who our board members are and what they do when they're not generously volunteering their time at the USM Foundation. Learn more about the winners of our 2012 art contest and stay tuned for upcoming news of our 2013 art contest.

Welcome to the new USM Foundation website. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Our Vision

Our vision is to attract broad resources that transform the USM and its institutions, create a network of advocates to embrace the USM’s role as an educator and economic engine, and to grow a long-term, sustainable culture of philanthropy across the University System of Maryland.
