Open a Fund
Families and businesses leverage the Community Foundation’s resources and expertise toward achieving lasting change in our state and beyond. Our work is in furtherance of our fundholders’ explicit or evolving goals, with an eye towards simplifying the process of giving and amplifying the impact of that giving. We are with you from inspiration to results.
Create a Legacy
Many fundholders and other members of our community designate the Community Foundation as the beneficiary of their philanthropic funds. In so doing, they signal the trust that they place in the Community Foundation’s ability to implement their charitable interests in perpetuity and to identify the very best ways to steward their philanthropic legacies.
Join Our Work
The Community Foundation welcomes fundholders and other community members to actively participate in our Changemaker work. Whether we are reforming NJ’s juvenile justice system or raising awareness of human trafficking, we believe that connecting donors’ philanthropic interests to critical imperatives in the state and pooling their dollars with our own allows us to have a greater impact on issues that matter.
