"The Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation came forward and initiated our Endowment Campaign with a challenge grant. That gift inspired others to make their contributions. In doing so, the Jacobsohn Art Suite was named to honor the work of Carol M. Jacobsohn, herself, an artist and connoisseur of the visual arts. The Foundation served as a stimulus, and set themselves apart as invested in education for children with learning differences, the arts and the community."

This year, the AACC Foundation celebrates thirteen remarkable years of generous support from the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation...Generous investment by the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation has accomplished the following important outcomes for our community:
  • Enabling local women to return to their academic studies through the Dr. Thomas E. Florestano endowed scholarship;
  • Leveraging $235,000 in gifts through a challenge grant to provide cutting edge equipment for AACC's Nursing and Health programs;
  • Funding the creation of a 1-credit Student Success course to teach students to study better, manage time, and set achievable goals;
  • Supporting the renovation of two medical laboratories to meet new accreditation standards;
  • Establishing the Jumpstart Scholarship to facilitate enrollment for high potential Annapolis high school students with financial need in college classes so they can earn advance credit;
  • Creating a trades scholarship to provide the financial assistance to men and women who pursue workforce development classes and would otherwise not have the opportunity for financial aid;
  • Joining with a member of the College Board of Trustees in an ambitious challenge grant that leveraged $1.8 million and placed AACC's first campaign on a trajectory for success; and
  • Naming one of the three large laboratories in the Clauson Center and providing a powerful example for other donors to emulate to help AACC reach the tipping point in achieving funds necessary for constructing the college's first building through philanthropy.
The generosity of the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation is literally helping thousands of students learn and achieve their educational and career goals. Transformational gifts like support for the Florestano endowed scholarship and Clauson Center construction will sustain this support for decades to come. Thank you very much!

"Many of our students at AACC have to balance family, work and education needs and manage both resources and time to do so. The Dr. Thomas E. Florestano Scholarship not only provides the financial support that these students need but also the encouragement that others believe in them and help provide access to those resources they need to help them reach their goals. It's support like this that benefits our entire community. We are so very grateful to the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation and to Dr. Florestano who continues to play a tremendous role in supporting education in Anne Arundel County."

Since August 2006 they played a critical role our organization’s Capital Campaign to open our flagship Club, the Wiley H. Bates Clubhouse in Annapolis, Maryland. The Foundation has consistently played a role in BGCAA's success by sponsoring our annual events, creating an academic endowment for members, and providing a challenge grant during the Youth of the Year dinner to inspire giving from the community. Through their generous challenge grants, they inspire others to give graciously and have helped raise significant funding to support the Quality after-school programs that the Clubs provide. The funding gives young people access to opportunities, leveling the playing field, no matter their economic status, race, gender, sexuality, or religion. By providing a safe-haven, with caring mentors, and life enhancing programs, Club Kids thrive. They plan for great futures, learning skills for success. They reach their potential and emerge prepared for all sorts of possibilities--ready to impact the world.

          The establishment of the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation, Inc. Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Scholarship Fund in 2018 was yet another investment in the future of the youth of Anne Arundel County. Believing that education is the cornerstone in which Great Futures are created, the scholarship fund was created to support higher learning for Club members to ensure that the most deserving students have a chance to learn.

          The Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation has truly helped change the lives of thousands of local youth and is a cornerstone in the success of BGCAA's six Anne Arundel County Clubhouses.
