Giving Tuesday 2019

This campaign ended on December 04, 2019, but you can still make a gift to College of Southern Maryland by clicking here!

On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, the CSM Foundation will join thousands of colleges and nonprofits around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity by participating in #GivingTuesday, a 24-hour online giving event using social media. CSM knows firsthand the generosity that thrives within the Southern Maryland community and the CSM family. For the past seven years, CSM has witnessed this remarkable giving spirit unfold as people step forward on Giving Tuesday with gifts large and small that will contribute to the success of CSM students working toward degrees, certificates or the mastery of a new skill set. Last year, the CSM Foundation raised $137,715 through 270 unique donors.

Choose CSM this year and champion student success by donating to the CSM Foundation on December 3.  Gifts of every size, contributed on #GivingTuesday by people like you, will help change lives here at home in Southern Maryland.
