ITServe Alliance and BAPS Charities donate to Middlesex College Foundation
The Middlesex College Foundation recently received donations from ITServe Alliance and BAPS Charities.
ITServe Alliance, an organization that represents the interests of small and medium-sized IT staffing services, presented a check for $15,000 to the Middlesex College Foundation and College President Mark McCormick during his meeting in May, according to Thomas Peterson, marketing and communications at Middlesex College.
The program also included a speech by U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ).
Three member companies of the Alliance – FinacleSoft Inc., HallMark Global Technologies Inc. and NAM Info Inc. – have each funded scholarships of $5,000. Each scholarship will be awarded to one student each year with $2,500 paid in the fall semester and $2,500 in the spring.
The first three scholarships will be awarded in the fall of 2022.
“We are so grateful to the ITServe Alliance companies for supporting our students,” said McCormick. “Their sense of corporate responsibility is inspiring. I am also very grateful to Andy Paluri, Board Member of Middlesex College, who put us in touch with the Alliance.
ITServe’s CSR vision is to “empower local communities through education and training”. Implementing the vision, ITServe is offering STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) scholarships to local high school and college students.
A walk/run organized by BAPS Charities raised $5,000 for the Middlesex College Foundation on June 5. The walk also raised funds for the JFK University Medical Center and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The event, titled “In the Joy of Others”, is part of an international effort by BAPS to raise funds for their local communities.
“We at Middlesex College are grateful to Praful Raja and members of BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir for their generous support of Middlesex College and our students,” said McCormick. “The BAPS community’s continued support of the Middlesex College Foundation and the Middlesex College Community Resource Hub and Food Pantry enables our students to earn an Associate’s degree and fight for a better life.”
