The M&T Charitable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of M&T Bank, recently awarded Wilson College a $2,500 grant. This is the fourth year the foundation has funded a scholarship for a student with financial need who is enrolled in one of Wilson’s health sciences majors, with preference given to a nursing student.

The foundation “strives to strengthen communities by providing support for a diverse range of civic, cultural, health and human service organizations,” according to its website.

M&T, based in Buffalo, N.Y., and with locations in Chambersburg, has also supported Wilson College in the past through the M&T Bank Endowed Scholarship and by contributing to an outdoor learning pavilion at the college’s organic farm.
