Atlantic Cape Foundation Mission and History

Mission

History
Founded in 1978 as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation is dedicated to serving the mission of Atlantic Cape by providing financial support to the college and its students. Foundation funds provide college scholarships to students with financial need, capital for campus improvements, and cultural and educational community outreach programs. In its history, the Foundation has raised well over $5 million for college scholarships, academic programs and enhancing the campus environment.

The Foundation Board invites corporations, private foundations, local businesses, members of the community and Atlantic Cape alumni to join our fundraising efforts and invest in our vision of increasing access to higher education by making it affordable for everyone.
