Why Donate?

Camden Schools Foundation operates with minimal overhead; so donations are not diluted on their way to the classroom and to scholarships for graduating seniors.

Please pitch in and make a difference in a child’s future.

The story behind Camden’s distinction as the nation’s poorest city is told in the following numbers. All impact the resources available to children and the quality of public education.

  • Only 66% of Camden’s students graduate high school, compared to 94% statewide.
  • Average household income is less than one third of other New Jersey cities.
  • Families living below poverty line: 40%
  • Residents from 18-to-24 years old living below poverty line: 50%
  • Unemployment: 10%
  • And, despite Camden’s emergence as a center for “Eds and Meds” and a recent infusion of technical companies, students have inadequate exposure to science education, research experiences and career paths that lead to family-sustaining jobs.
