Corporate Partners Prove Vital to CBF’s Success
Much of CBF’s good work is made possible through the support of a diverse and
unique group of companies that are committed to the Bay and our community.
Eco-Friendly and Bay-Conscious
Bambeco, a Baltimore-based company that
sells a wide-range of eco-friendly home décor
products, is passionate about the environment and demonstrates this through support
of like-minded organizations, including CBF.
Bambeco has provided invaluable support to
CBF’s golf tournament and our Bands in the
Sand event, but also finds other creative ways
to contribute. This past summer, Bambeco
supported the Watershed Ride as CBF staff
members John Rodenhausen and Dr. Beth
McGee biked 1,300 miles around the Bay
watershed in three weeks to educate and create awareness of issues that impact the Bay.
Susan Aplin, CEO, explains the company’s
support, “The Watershed Ride was a unique
opportunity for Bambeco to work side-by-side with CBF to raise awareness about a
cause we’re passionate about—clean water.
CBF is truly doing great things and we’re
proud to partner with them to make a positive impact on the health of the Bay.”
Dixon Hughes Goodman, one of the premier public accounting firms in the country, supports CBF in
a variety of areas, including environmental education. Above, company employees participate in a
corporate service day, donating their time at CBF’s Oyster Restoration Center in Virginia.
Inspiring Leaders in Education
A leader in global security and one of the largest
private employers in Maryland, Northrop
Grumman, has been a long-time supporter of
CBF’s environmental education efforts. Over
the past decade, this defense industry giant
has made it possible for CBF to host the annual Maryland Teacher of the Year retreat at one
of CBF’s island education centers.
Each year, Northrop Grumman sends a representative to experience the retreat first-hand.
Cheryl Jaffe, Education Outreach Liaison and
Principal Systems Engineer, had the pleasure
of attending a retreat, which was held at
Smith Island off Maryland’s Eastern Shore. As
Jaffe explains, “I was told many times during
the retreat how deeply the teachers appreciate all that we do for them. It is clear how
meaningful our sponsorship is for the teachers, both as a show of support, and as a catalyst for collaboration.”
Employees from Allegis Group, a staffing and recruiting company headquartered in Hanover,
Maryland, volunteer at CBF’s Clagett Farm. The company also provides generous support of CBF’s
environmental education program.
