President Mora Invites Your Participation In First-Ever Capital & Scholarship Campaign

Dr. Peter Mora

Dear Friends:

This is a very exciting time at Atlantic Cape Community College as we undertake our first-ever major gifts campaign in support of our mission of providing access to superior educational programs.

A recent branding study conducted for the College and the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation discovered that residents of our service area overwhelmingly view the College as a vital resource for providing opportunity for access to higher education and training.

Following that study, the College launched a major branding campaign with the theme “Opportunity Starts Here.” Using outstanding alumni as spokespeople, the campaign demonstrates the impact Atlantic Cape made on their lives, and that our graduates are successful contributors to the leading industries of the region and the world.

Now it’s your turn to help us ensure that we continue to provide opportunity for our students well into the future.

“Create Opportunity - The Capital and Scholarship Campaign for Atlantic Cape Community College” gives you the chance to support students from Atlantic and Cape May counties with increased access to high quality, affordable undergraduate education. Specifically, your philanthropic help is critical in supporting the college’s efforts to expand its capacity to provide scholarships for our students and augment funding for Atlantic Cape’s transformational capital expansion program, Blueprint 2020.

The campaign’s $2.5 million goal will provide funding to expand the Atlantic Cape Foundation’s current endowment, thus increasing the number of scholarships provided to area students. The campaign also seeks support to purchase furnishings and scientific equipment for the first major construction project of Blueprint 2020, a new science and technology building.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, students, faculty, and staff, I am asking your support for this most important initiative. With your help, success in this campaign will enable Atlantic Cape to continue to fulfill its legacy of truly serving as the “community’s college.”
