New Jersey League Of Community Bankers Establishes Trust Fund
The New Jersey League Of Community Bankers, Cranford, has established the New Jersey League Of Community Bankers Education Foundation, Inc. for dependents of service members who lost their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq. The 75 members of the League will support the fund.

Scholarship funds will be considered for applicants with a high school or equivalency diploma in pursuit of higher education, including technical or vocational training, and who demonstrate a financial need. Either the dependent or the service member must have a geographical connection to New Jersey. The Foundation is currently in the fundraising stage and anticipates applications will be accepted in 2006. The Fund’s trustees have made all information available to the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and are working with federal and state officials in implementing this program.

Raymond Hallock, Chairman, New Jersey League Of Community Bankers, said, “The Board has been inspired by the significant work and sacrifices of United States military personnel throughout the world, particularly in Afghanistan and Iraq. With this scholarship fund we will be honored to help dependents of service members who gave their lives.”
