Employee Stories

Dear Colleague,

Grant Wilinski

Last week, Dr. Mora sent you a letter in which he introduced Create Opportunity – The Scholarship and Capital Campaign for Atlantic Cape Community College. He spoke of the campaign’s goals and accomplishments and asked you to contemplate making a donation. We hope you had time to consider his request and a chance to discuss it with the decision makers in your home.

We know that every day you give back by working hard for our students, but today we are inviting you to do just a little bit more. We would like to ask that you consider a special gift of $100, (Of course, a personally significant gift of any size will be greatly appreciated.), which is payable as a one-time contribution or in small bi-weekly installments through payroll deduction.

Your tax-deductible gift of $100 will entitle you to have your name imprinted on our donor wall located in the lobby of the new STEM building, signifying for years to come your commitment to and support for Atlantic Cape.

The campaign focuses on two initiatives and you may choose to give to one or both: Enhancement of the scholarship fund or procurement of scientific equipment for the Science Technology Engineering & Math building labs. Your support will have a positive impact on our students and will play a significant role in helping them achieve their dreams.

There are several giving options available to you. You may make a gift of your own or sponsor an event and donate the proceeds. You may make a one-time gift or distribute the payment of your gift over one or multiple years. Employee payroll deduction and online giving are also available as convenient options that make giving very easy.

You may make a donation or a pledge by using the Employee Donation/Pledge Form. Click here to print your copy of the form. Please return your completed form to the Atlantic Cape Foundation. If you would like to discuss your gift in more detail, please contact Maria Kellett, director of resource development, at 463-3670 or mkellett@atlantic.edu .

Over the next three weeks, you will receive emails from us that include personal stories from other employees who have donated to the campaign. Please take a moment to read about what motivated them to Create Opportunity at Atlantic Cape. We hope their stories will inspire you to join us.

Thank you for your dedication to Atlantic Cape Community College and its students and especially for considering this request.
