Englewood Area Community Foundation Receives Grant from Time Warner Cable to Expand Career Development Program

The Englewood Area Community Foundation (EACF) is one of seven non-profit organizations that received funds from Time Warner Cable’s annual “Cause Campaign”. The campaign supports children’s educational and developmental programming. Brien Kelley, Vice President, Time
Warner Cable, presented Michael Shannon, Chairman of the EACF, with an award check of $4,500. EACF, in partnership with the North Jersey Education Consortium (NJEC), an alliance of four school districts, will use the grant to continue the late Dr. Bill Stafford’s work to provide career development services to high school students.

In December of 2007, the EACF convened the NJEC, a group of educators from Bergenfield, Englewood, Teaneck, and Hackensack who meet to discuss ways to share services and educational resources. Through the Consortium, the EACF plans to build upon Stafford’s program to create a coordinated career development curriculum starting at the primary grade level.

Time Warner Cable also awarded a grant to EACF last year. In collaboration with the Essie R. Stafford Corporation Career Development Program, workshops on the global market and skill assessment were implemented for juniors and seniors at Dwight Morrow High School, Leonia High School, and Hackensack High School. Now the Foundation is expanding the program to the whole NJEC region. Shannon says “Corporate best online casino and community partnerships, like those De online casino’s , die hoeven slechts te brainstormen over scary casino acties, want het aanbod Halloween spellen, dat zit wel goed. with Time Warner Cable, the Essie R. Stafford Corporation, and the NJEC, are essential to the Foundation’s work of investing in today’s youth to build stronger communities.”

The Englewood Area Community Foundation (EACF), is a non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1998. The Foundation’s core mission is to enhance community life. It accomplishes its mission by convening groups of citizens to discuss and collaborate in resolving issues of common interest, by making grants that address needs in the areas of education, public health, and community building, and by offering, in partnership with the CFNJ, comprehensive donor services including donor-advised funds, tax-saving annuities, and trust options.
