Chesapeake Bay Trust adds new trustees and councilmembers
The Chesapeake Bay Trust introduces four new Councilmembers, four new ex officio Trustees, and one new Governor-appointed Trustee to its organizational leadership.
The Chesapeake Bay Trust, a non-profit grant-making organization established by the Maryland General Assembly in 1985, is a unique organization in the region, providing support for hundreds of community and natural resource projects per year and over $100 million since inception. Because all communities benefit from healthy natural resources and at the same time, all communities can help improve natural resources, the Trust strives to engage all audiences of the region in natural resources programs. The grants supported by the Trust lead to actions that measurably improves local communities and increase resource stewardship through grant awards focusing on education, restoration, community engagement, science and innovation, and capacity building.
“These new voices, coming from academia, government, and private industry, are going to greatly help the Trust accomplish its mission,” stated Trust board chairman, Gary Jobson of Jobson Sailing Inc, a world-class America’s Cup sailor, former ESPN commentator, and NBC Olympic commentator. “These individuals are pillars of their communities, and we are thrilled to add them to the Trust family.”
