The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES) and the Richard A. Henson Foundation (RAHF) have partnered to support the efforts of Junior Achievement to bring philanthropy education to all public high school students in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties. Funds for this in-school classroom based program will provide about 1,800 students access to first-hand understanding of economic issues they will face upon high school graduation, including the personal and social rewards of charitable giving.
