Harold B. & Dorothy A. Snyder Schools of Nursing
By far one of the most prominent beneficiaries of Snyder philanthropy has been the Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center.
This medical institution, located in Plainfield, NJ, is part of the JFK Health System and serves the vital healthcare needs of Union County community patrons.
The Snyder Foundation allocated $8.8 million in support of its new and improved Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools of Nursing, Medical Imaging and Therapeutic Sciences in 2006. Previously, the school enrolled approximately 250 students annually, but with the dedication of the new building funded by a Snyder Foundation grant, the enrollment capacity jumped to 500 students per year.
The Snyder Foundation's financial support was especially critical in the development and opening of the Audrey A. Snyder Single Parent Program and Family Residence, dedicated in 2006 under the Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools of Nursing umbrella. Intended to support the needs and ease the challenges of single parents who study nursing, the school and residential facilities offer the environment and tools students need to improve their odds for professional success and opportunities to build a better life for themselves and their children.
