F&M Trust recently committed $4,500 to the Chambersburg Area School District Foundation as part of the nonprofit’s teacher grant program.
Each year, the foundation administers grants to faculty, staff and administrators for innovative programs and equipment unique to a project or curriculum not funded in the regular district budget.
The grants support a broad range of projects, from those that focus on traditional academic subjects to others in the visual and performing arts and still others that promote multi-cultural and community learning experiences.
“F&M Trust values quality education and understands its importance in developing the next generation of leaders. The Chambersburg Area School District Foundation has a proven track record of improving the experience of teachers and students in Chambersburg. We’re honored to work with them to support classroom needs in the community,” said Tim Henry, president and CEO of F&M Trust.
Since its inception in 1991, the Chambersburg Area School District Foundation has provided the students and teachers of the district with more than $1.5 million in grants and scholarships
“The Chambersburg Area School District Foundation is so very grateful to F&M Trust for their financial support of our teacher grant program. Our foundation provides teachers with the resources to develop and implement innovative instructional strategies to engage students in 21st century learning that are not otherwise covered by the school district budget. We thank F&M for their partnership as we work together to ensure our students are critical thinkers, innovators, career-ready and empowered,” said Angela Lynch, executive director of the Chambersburg Area School District Foundation.
