CFNJ Launches ‘Scholarship Opportunity Fund’

April 21, 2015

For too many of New Jersey’s young people, the dream of a college education is simply beyond their reach. In some of the state’s lowest income communities, not even 20% of high school graduates have the opportunity to attend college.

Because we know that education is critical to helping young people live healthier, more prosperous lives, we now offer an opportunity for interested donors to help make that happen.

By contributing to the Community Foundation’s Scholarship Opportunity Fund your gift will go directly toward the education of a New Jersey student this year.

The Community Foundation’s Scholarship Opportunity Fund allows anyone – whether they have a scholarship fund or not – to support the educational dreams of New Jersey’s young people.


While you’re here, be sure to check out the list of current scholarships offered by the Community Foundation of New Jersey. The application deadlines for several of these scholarships are approaching fast.
