Arundel Federal Savings Bank recently donated $14,000 in proceeds from its 6th annual Charity Golf Outing to the Anne Arundel Community College Foundation Inc. to support academic initiatives of the college Entrepreneurial Studies Institute (ESI).
The bank has contributed more than $84,000 in golf tournament proceeds to ESI since beginning the tournament in 2005.
“The support of Arundel Federal Savings Bank and its tournament sponsors help our ESI students afford college and have access to resources to learn how to be successful in business,” said Kathy Bolton, interim executive director of the AACC Foundation.
George Behr, Arundel Federal president, and Lisa Hart, branch manager, toured ESI at its Nov. 4 open house. They met with students in the Hatchery and were able to see and hear how their support has helped the student businesses grow.
ESI offers credit and noncredit instruction to aspiring and seasoned business owners, innovators and entrepreneurs. Studies can lead to award of an Entrepreneurship Associate of Applied Science degree, Entrepreneurship certificate and Culinary Arts Entrepreneurship certificate. Located in the Careers Center Building on the Arnold campus, ESI facilities include the Business Resource Center and student business Incubator, the Hatchery.
The AACC foundation's mission is to secure and steward private funds to enhance the educational endeavors of the college. For information, visit www.aacc.edu/foundation, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-777-2515.
