Dear Atlantic Cape Employee:
As you are likely aware, Atlantic Cape Community College and the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation have embarked on the College's first ever major gifts campaign entitled "Create Opportunity."
The goal of this three-year campaign is to raise $2.5 million for two purposes: First, to increase the endowment of the Foundation so that more scholarships can be provided to our students; Second, to provide needed equipment and furnishings for the new STEM building now under construction.
Please refer to the attached fact sheet to get additional information about the Create Opportunity campaign.
After the first two and one-half years, campaign volunteers have done a tremendous job, and I am pleased to announce that the community has responded to our efforts by contributing over $2 million to date. I am writing today to seek your financial support for this worthwhile effort.
Over the next four weeks, two of your colleagues, Kristi Bergman and Grant Wilinski, will be reaching out to you in their roles as campaign co-chairs of the Faculty and Staff giving program. Their emails will explainhow you can make a contribution as well as share stories about other members of our college community who are campaign donors.I applaud their efforts in support of this campaign.
I am extremely proud of the work done by our faculty and staff to ensure that the residents of Atlantic and Cape May counties have access to superior educational programs. A gift to this campaign will ensure that the students of Atlantic Cape will have access to both the financial resources they need to succeed in college and to a state of the art learning environment.
I hope that you will consider being a donor to the “Create Opportunity” campaign.
Dr. Peter L. Mora
