Fulton Bank of New Jersey has recently provided Centenary University with a gift of $20,000, which represents the third installment of a five-year scholarship commitment as part of an initiative to give back to the community.
“I would like to thank Fulton Bank of New Jersey for their generosity,” says Dr. David P. Haney, Centenary University president. “It is opportunities such as this that make a huge impact on our students.”
Over the years, Fulton Bank of NJ has been one of Centenary’s most dedicated advocates. The longstanding relationship has spanned many years. In fact, Fulton Bank of NJ made a sizable contribution to the David and Carol Lackland Center, which was built in 2010. Fulton Bank of NJ’s executives have also served on the Board of Trustees at Centenary University. This year, the Fulton Bank of NJ Scholarship has been awarded to seven individuals. Recipients are determined on a merit and need basis.
“It is the intention of Fulton Bank of New Jersey to continue to foster our relationship with Centenary University,” says Keith German, Community Reinvestment officer at Fulton Bank of NJ. “This gift is made through Fulton Forward, the Bank’s initiative to promote the building of vibrant communities through programs, products, and services, designed to foster affordable housing, drive economic development, and promote education and financial literacy in the neighborhoods served by its banking subsidiaries.”
