The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, through “You Make the Difference — The Campaign for Stockton College,” has raised $25.36 million dollars. The original goal, set by President Herman Saatkamp in 2011, was $20 million.The money that was raised helped add new centers and programs on Stockton’s main campus as well as enabling the opening of new instructional sites in Woodbine and Hammonton and funding new scholarships.
As a result of the campaign, Stockton can offer 53 new endowed scholarships and 42 new annual scholarships. In 2010, Trustee Dr. James Yoh offered $500,000 to establish the Yoh Scholarship fund. The next year, an anonymous donor contributed $1 million to aid students facing financial hardship.
The campaign started in 2007 with a silent phase before going public in 2011. Saatkamp had initiated plans for the campaign during his first year at the college in 2003.
“Through the generosity and hard work of many, Stockton has become a force for economic, cultural and civic engagement in the region and state, while continuing to grow as a center for academic excellence,” he said.
The campaign ended June 30.
