The Investors Foundation, which provides funding to organizations that enrich the communities served by Investors Bank, has awarded a grant of $10,000 to Seton Hall University. The funding, which builds on a similar grant awarded by the Foundation in prior years, will support the university’s Nonprofit Sector Resource Institute.
Part of Seton Hall’s Center for Public Service, the Institute is an academic management support and research center that works to build the capacity of the nonprofit sector in New Jersey and throughout the nation. Services offered by the Institute include professional development programs for nonprofit management professionals; management assistance to nonprofit organizations; and the conducting and dissemination of applied research.
“The Institute’s primary programs are the Board Leadership Institute and the Nonprofit Financial Management Program,” said Stephanie Hauge, Seton Hall’s Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations. “Support from our partners and funders enables financially constrained nonprofits to benefit from participation in these professional development programs.”
“We deeply appreciate the continuing support of the Investors Foundation,” says Barkley Calkins, the Institute's Director. “Their friendship and generosity is truly empowering as we work to fulfill our mission.”
“Since its founding 17 years ago, the Nonprofit Sector Resource Institute has been giving Seton Hall students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to support the vital work that nonprofit organizations perform in our communities,” added Kevin Cummings, president and CEO of Investors Bank and a member of the Foundation’s board of trustees.
