USM Board of Regents Committee on Advancement to Meet October 28

Adelphi, Md. (Oct. 26, 2015) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Advancement will meet at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 28. The meeting will be held in the Chancellor's Conference Room in the Elkins Building at the USM headquarters, 3300 Metzerott Road, Adelphi, MD.

The committee will discuss several items. These items include fundraising progress during the periods of fiscal year (FY) 2013 through FY 2015; a review of the committee's charge and goals; and a report on the awarding the awarding of quasi-endowment program grants for FY 2016. Funding for these grants comes from income generated by the USM commitment of $10 million to the quasi-endowment fund created to support endowment building across all institutions.

The committee also will review a number of relevant USM policies regarding Advancement practices, such as policies on affiliated foundations and ethical practices in charitable giving.

The committee then would vote on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items that fall under closing guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. Those items are requests by two institutions to name buildings after individuals.
