Welcome to the University of Maryland College Park Foundation
After more than a decade serving as a volunteer to my alma mater, I am honored to chair the Board of Trustees of the University of Maryland College Park Foundation. This dedicated body of Terps and honorary Terps provides fundamental support to the University of Maryland, College Park, making possible its steady rise in prominence and prestige among its peer institutions across the U.S. and globally. Our accomplished student body and renowned faculty act a beacon for innovation and entrepreneurship while devoting valuable resources to maintain our ascent as one of the nation’s preeminent public research institutions.
Members of our Board of Trustees offer their service to the Foundation, stewarding its resources to the benefit of the university and its mission. In doing so, our trustees:
Encourage and expand philanthropic support for university initiatives;
Oversee the investment and distribution of private gifts to the university;
Serve as advocates and ambassadors on behalf of the university within our communities; and
Leverage our knowledge, experience and networks to assist and advise university leadership.
As alumni, parents and friends of the university, we aim to grow the Foundation’s impact to the campus community, Greater College Park, the State of Maryland and beyond. With the conclusion of the Fearless Ideas campaign and the achievement of its historic $1.5 billion fundraising goal in our sights, we look forward to new opportunities to propel this extraordinary institution to new heights.
We welcome you to join us in support of past, present and future Terps, near and far, and thank you for your own commitment to the Black and Gold.
