Giving Thanks, 11/29/18
The event, attended by nearly 70 donors and students, was held to celebrate the accomplishments of students who are attending the Cumberland Campus, but also to express gratitude to the people who donate to these scholarships. Several students made brief comments at the dinner, sharing how the support from donors has made a difference in their ability to continue with their education. Support for Cumberland’s students, faculty, and programs has always been a part of the college’s core. With the continued partnership of alumni and friends, the college’s mission to serve the public good and create a better future for students can be fulfilled. Over the years, the Campus distribution of scholarships to students in need, has averaged more than $675,000 annually. That is why the Foundation wanted to break from the traditional fundraising event model and simply take time to say thank you.
The Forgotten, 4/11/18
“The Forgotten” emphasized and promoted awareness around the children of the Holocaust; children whose names are known as well as children whose names were never recorded. The focal point of this experience, led by the Cumberland County Campus Educational Foundation, in partnership with Stockton University and the Irving and Esther Raab Family Foundation, was a display of butterflies in various shapes, sizes, colors, and textures created as part of a community collaboration among local school children. The butterflies created a walk through garden effect honoring both the memory of the children who perished in the Holocaust, as well as those who survived. Additionally, the experience featured the work of Manfred Bockelmann whose charcoal-on-canvas portraits of children of the Holocaust provide a haunting reminder of what occurred. The evening also featured specially chosen period live music, poetry readings, film footage, art and special guests.

2018 School Counts! Golf Classic, 6/6/18
The Foundation held its 18th School Counts! Golf Classic at the newly renovated Union League National Golf Club. The golf tournament assists the Cumberland County Campus Educational Foundation with raising awareness and funding for the School Counts! program which encourages students to develop workforce readiness habits deemed necessary by area employers. Students have the opportunity to earn a School Counts! certificate for each year in high school if they accomplish a higher than 95% attendance record, complete Algebra 1, achieve a grade of C or better in every course, and graduate from high school on time. Students who earn four consecutive School Counts! certificates are eligible for a two-year tuition scholarship to Cumberland Campus. This year’s event raised more than $50,000 for School Counts! students.
