March 7, 2013

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation accepted a $15,000 donation from Soroptimist International of Atlantic City, March 5, to establish an endowed scholarship for Atlantic Cape students enrolled in health care-related studies.

“Atlantic Cape Community College and the Soroptimist International of Atlantic City have enjoyed a terrific partnership over the course of many years, and we greatly appreciate their continued support of our students,” Dr. Peter Mora, Atlantic Cape president, said.

The Soroptimist International of Atlantic City is a local chapter of the international volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls, throughout the world. Chartered in 1931, the Atlantic City club has a history of service achievement, active in fulfilling the mission of making a positive impact on the area.           

“The club members enthusiastically endorsed this contribution to create an endowment that will guarantee that generations of students will receive the financial assistance they need to pursue their college goals,” Adrienne Beinfest, Soroptimist International of Atlantic City president, said.
