Zaberer Foundation Donates $100,000 to Atlantic Cape's Capital & Scholarship Campaign

May 1, 2012

Atlantic Cape Community College and the Atlantic Cape Foundation accepted a $100,000 donation to the “Create Opportunity: The Capital & Scholarship Campaign for Atlantic Cape Community College,” from the Frances M. Zaberer Foundation, on April 24, at Revel Atlantic City.

The $100,000 endowment to the Atlantic Cape Foundation will enable the college to continue its legacy of promoting culinary excellence. Started by Charles Holliday in memory of his grandmother, the Frances M. Zaberer Foundation has provided more than $60,000 in culinary scholarships to Atlantic Cape culinary students since 1986. The funds generated from the endowment will support Academy of Culinary Arts students through the following scholarship programs: Charles Zaberer Scholarship, Carole Ercolani Zaberer Scholarship, Edwin Zaberer Scholarship for Academic Excellence and the Anthony A. Ercolani Scholarship.

Atlantic Cape’s Capital & Scholarship Campaign began in September 2009 and is expected to conclude in March 2013. The campaign offers investors recognition opportunities and invites donors to support Atlantic Cape students through the creation of scholarship programs.

Foundation members are drawn from local industry and small businesses and represent a broad cross-section of active leaders in the community. The Foundation has raised more than $5 million for scholarships, Foundation operations and to enhance academic programs and the campus environment. Annually, the Foundation provides more than $200,000 for institutional scholarships, grants and emergency help.
