The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation raises funds for college scholarships, academic programs, and enhancements to the college learning environment and experience through a variety of activities. These activities include:  the annual spring Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala, the annual fall Scramble ‘Fore’ Scholarships Golf Tournament, along with annual and multi-year gift campaigns, alumni giving programs, and planned giving vehicles.

As a result of the hard work of the 31 volunteer members of the board, the Foundation provides nearly $200,000 annually for institutional scholarships, grants and emergency help. Founded in 1978 as an independent but affiliated 501(c)3 nonprofit charity, the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation is dedicated to serving the Atlantic Cape mission by providing financial support to the college and its students.
