Community Foundation of New Jersey

Creating your own scholarship fund

November 14, 2017

To kick off this season of thanks, we are extending the opportunity to create a meaningful and lasting scholarship fund to all interested New Jerseyans. Please click for our Scholarship Fund Fact Sheet to review the myriad ways to support New Jersey’s next generation of learners and productive citizens.

Creating a scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of New Jersey is a simple process that yields numerous rewards over time. Scholarships may focus on specific fields of study (from architecture and journalism to environmental science or even sailing), specific schools (from graduates of specific high schools to incoming students at specific colleges), or students with specific backgrounds or characteristics such as acute need and/or exceptional perseverance. As your scholarship services provider, we are committed to achieving the greatest educational impact on behalf of your clients.

This year, the Community Foundation of New Jersey granted $1.1 million in scholarships to 225 worthy students on behalf of philanthropic families and companies – bringing the dream of a college education to life for so many.

As you may know, a college education is a determining factor in future employment, salary, and financial independence. Scholarships provide a critical bridge to a much brighter, more sustainable future.

The holiday season is a time to give thanks – for our loved ones and good friends, for good health and good fortune. It is also a time to reflect on what was and hope for what will be.
