Charitable Foundation Announces $50,000 to University Veterans Programs

The New Jersey Bankers Association’s Charitable Foundation announced they will, once again, be donating $50,000 to veterans programs at New Jersey-based universities. The Foundation has contacted Rutgers, Rider, Monmouth, and Fairleigh Dickinson universities respectively to make them aware of the donation amounts each will receive. Contributions will be awarded in January 2022.

Donations have been specifically earmarked for the following programs: Rutger’s Office of Veterans and Military Programs and Services, Rider’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Monmouth’s Coming Home Project, and Fairleigh Dickinson’s Veterans Launching Ventures.

This is the sixth consecutive year NJBankers Charitable Foundation has donated to local veterans programs. “The New Jersey Banking industry has always made giving back, and supporting our local institutions a priority,” said John E. McWeeney, Jr., president and CEO of New Jersey Bankers Association. “Our ongoing support of these valuable programs allows us to recognize those men and women who have volunteered to protect our country in the Armed Forces.”

“This is a unique and valuable opportunity for our veterans, and we are so grateful that the NJBankers Charitable Foundation shares our vision of helping veterans’ personal and professional growth through entrepreneurial training,” said Dr. Ron Cook, founder of Rider’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and associate dean of graduate programs in the Norm Brodsky College of Business at Rider University. “This donation allows the veterans to continue to receive this training free of charge, as a thank you for their service to our country.”
