BENEFITING: BROOKDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION TRUST
The Brookdale Community College Foundation Trust is a non-profit organization that raises money to fund projects, programs and scholarships that benefit students of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ. Donations at all levels warmly welcomed!
This year, the Brookdale Foundation awarded over $325,000 in scholarships to Brookdale students with financial need. Nearly 6,000 students have benefited from over $3.5 million in scholarships and grants over the last 15 years. Many Brookdale students juggle full-time and part-time jobs, family responsibilities and college coursework simultaneously. Many are "over commmitted" and work long hours just to be able to pay for school. For some, it becomes overwhelming and their dream of earning a college degree is delayed, postponed or forfeited completely. Providing scholarships to these students enables thems to continue their education and build better futures for themselves, their families and our communities.
Here's what one recipient wrote: "The Brookdale Foundation scholarship helped me financially and built my confidence so that I could succeed at college. I'm not sure where I would be today if not for the scholarship. I'm proud to say I graduated in May 2014 and start at Rutgers in fall 2014. Thank you!"
