Support Rutgers ELRA

ELRA Kids are Camden’s Future!

The Early Learning Research Academy relies on tuition dollars and funding from a range of supporters including community organizations, corporations and state agencies. Our students are taught in one of the finest programs and facilities in the country, but they always need more support.

Our mission is to provide rigorous and holistic instruction that enhances the future school success of Camden City children. We also seek to create research here at ELRA that discovers and informs new strategic models for early childhood development that can be used by other childhood centers in the United States.

You and your organization have the opportunity to fund these two needs: (1) program funding for our students or (2) research funding for our scholars and staff.

ELRA and the Community Leadership Center at Rutgers–Camden have a proven record of results and can guarantee you that any investment in our students is an investment in a better future for them and for Camden City.
