Emergency Support for Students

In response to the COVID-19 situation that has greatly impacted the lives of our friends and family locally, across the country and around the globe, the Atlantic Cape Foundation is working to identify critical areas of need as they emerge during this evolving situation. 

The Foundation has established two emergency funds to support students during these challenging times.  The General Student Emergency Fund will assist students in all majors who have suddenly been faced with economic hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Additionally, the Nursing and Health Professions Student Emergency Fund was created to support students who are enrolled in those critical programs.  Emergency assistance will help with urgent requests for financial support related to food insecurity, healthcare, childcare, housing and transportation. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!

Important Update!
Cares Act expands charitable contribution deductions.
For 2020, certain cash charitable contributions up to $300 can now be treated as above-the-line deductions for people who do not itemize their deductions, and the 60% of AGI limitation for cash contributions is waived for people who itemize their deductions.

Make a Donation Button

You can make a cash gift using currency, a check, money order, bank draft or credit card.  Gifts of cash are deductible in a given tax year up to 50% of a donor’s gross adjusted income, and an excess over that may be carried forward over five years.

A gift of cash is often the easiest way for many people to contribute to the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation.


Mail your gift, along with the donation form to:

Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation
341 Court House South Dennis Road
Cape May Court House, NJ 08210


If you have any questions regarding your gift, please contact us at 609-463-3670


All gifts receive a written acknowledgement from the Foundation, and most gifts are fully tax deductible.

You may find it more advantageous to give your gift in stock - especially appreciated securities - instead of cash, because you can save on income and capital gains taxes. Current tax laws make it possible for you to donate a charitable gift of stock at a remarkably low after-tax cost. You pay no capital gains tax upon the transfer of stock to the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation. You also receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift (assuming you have held the stock for longer than twelve months). For regularly traded stocks, the charitable deduction is determined by using the average of the high and low price on the date of the gift.

Your gifts of real estate, equipment, artwork, books, and other non-cash items are considered gifts of personal property. Your deduction will depend on the appraised value and how Atlantic Cape Community College will use the item.

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation has numerous naming opportunities across our three campuses. The College has a range of options available from creating a named scholarship to naming an existing building to endowing an academic program to naming a prominent public area. Please contact the Foundation to discuss what naming opportunity may be right for you or your organization.
