Pledge Match Program
If you were offered the opportunity to make an investment that would strengthen our community, our county, state and nation, you would certainly make that investment, right?
And, if that investment would enable a student to fulfill their dreams or pursue their passion through obtaining solid education – whether in a formal college setting, technical training program, or perhaps professional development program – you would definitely want to participate, right?
Even better, if your investment were to be matched dollar for dollar to double the benefit, you would invest without hesitation, right?
We’d like to offer you that investment opportunity right now! The newly formed Education Foundation arm of the Cape May County Chamber of Commerce has accepted a “challenge match” from a generous local business person. For every dollar raised for the Education Foundation, they will match it up to $10,000. Just think… every $25 donation becomes $50; every $100 donation becomes $200! Won’t you please help us reach the $10,000 goal, turning our total effort into $20,000?
What will the Education Foundation do with these funds, you ask? First, the Foundation has taken over the Chamber’s Scholarship program. Through the Education Foundation we will expand our scholarship giving to local high school graduates, awarding more scholarships each year. Next, the Education Foundation will offer workforce development programs, customer service training, and professional development programs to those working in Cape May County. Additionally, the Foundation plans to expand its support to include those pursuing adult education classes and technical training.
Please support the Education Foundation meet this challenge. This is a terrific opportunity to offer a hand up to an aspiring entrepreneur, a future business leader, a budding professional; the possibilities are endless.
