Mustard Seed of Cape May County Donates $15,000 for Collegiate Computers Program at CMCC

December 20, 2012

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation accepted a $15,000 gift from the Mustard Seed of Cape May County on Dec. 20. The donation will establish the Collegiate Computers Program at Atlantic Cape’s Cape May County Campus.

“The lack of financial resources and access to sophisticated computer equipment can be a barrier to student success. Through the Collegiate Computers Program, that barrier will be removed for a number of Cape May County students,” Dr. Peter Mora, Atlantic Cape president, said.

This pilot program, managed by the Atlantic Cape Foundation, will loan computers and printers to eligible second-year Atlantic Cape students while they attend classes. Upon graduation from Atlantic Cape, students will be given the equipment to keep. Eligible students must demonstrate financial need, have good grades and be willing to partner with a mentor.

The Mustard Seed of Cape May County is a not-for-profit, outreach program for St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Stone Harbor.
