Since its inception in 2006, the PHI Community Foundation's Atlantic City
Electric Golf Classic has raised nearly $1.3 million for nonprofit
organizations in South Jersey. The PHI Community Foundation donates funds to
organizations that help support the community in the areas of health, youth
development, educational support and low income advocacy.
Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF) works to protect rare and
vulnerable wildlife in New Jersey and beyond. From bald eagles and bobcats to
piping plovers and tiger salamanders, Conserve Wildlife has helped many
wildlife species recover and/or fight off extinction. Its biologists utilize
field science, habitat restoration, surveys, telemetry tracking, volunteer
management and other innovative methods to stall species declines and start
recoveries. Its team of educators informs students, scouts, corporate groups
and civic associations on New Jersey's diverse wildlife as well as volunteer
opportunities. CWF is partnering with
Atlantic City Electric to educate students, engage the public, and to help
restore pollinator habitat and osprey nesting platforms in southern New Jersey.
offers a wide range of innovative, practical and effective courses and clinical
services for students in grades 6 to12 who are experiencing adjustment,
behavioral and/or personality challenges. In addition to a challenging academic
program, Strang School offers a host of related services such as occupational
therapy, industrial arts, health and family living. It's through this
array of educational and support services that students are introduced to job
training and career exploration.
The Val Skinner Foundation's mission is to
help eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease while focusing on
reaching younger women with information about the importance of early detection
and healthy breast care practices. The Val Skinner Foundation, led by LPGA
veteran and founder Val Skinner, co-conceptualized the young women's initiative
with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
Funding from the Atlantic City Electric Golf Classic will support the foundation's
"Young Women's Initiative," designed to educate young women on breast cancer
awareness, risks and early detection.
