From small businesses to major corporations, New Jersey’s companies have played an invaluable role in our State’s philanthropic heritage. These businesses drive change at the community level, proactively partner with effective nonprofits, and keep a close eye on results throughout.

The Community Foundation of New Jersey works with businesses large and small to help set up and/or manage affiliated philanthropy programs. Services run the gamut from grantmaking support to financial compliance. And the audiences are just as broad, from a company’s own employees to the communities in which they live and work. Above all, we make sure that a company’s philanthropy program is effective, well-run, and in keeping with the company’s own values and priorities.

We invite you to consider the unique ways your company’s charitable giving may be put to use. Let us help your business make an investment in the community that aligns with your company objectives.

Businesses often seek to give back to the community in a way that aligns with their company objectives. Business Advised Funds allow businesses to approach philanthropy in a focused and efficient manner that makes the most of their charitable “investment.” CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT BUSINESS ADVISED FUNDS »
