Dates to keep in mind for year-end giving

Year-end is a busy time at the Community Foundation of New Jersey, as we facilitate a large volume of grants from generous fundholders to the causes and charities they care about. In November and December of last year, we processed 3,002 grants totaling $21 million. We except to exceed that amount this year.

If you need a grant made by December 31st of this year, we kindly ask you to initiate that grant by Monday, December 20th.

We encourage you to submit your grant recommendations via the fundholder portal. If you haven’t used the platform yet, we would be happy to get you signed up and walk you through the process. You can also peruse this handy Fundholder Portal Guide.

If you prefer to have a Community Foundation team member help you with your year-end giving personally, please contact:

Friday, December 31st is a bank holiday, so please plan accordingly.
