Tuesday, December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage charitable giving worldwide.
Here in New Jersey, we’d like to celebrate the work of our four Impact 100 partners who represent more than 1,000 women who have collectively given nearly $3.5 million to nonprofit organizations across our state – so far!
Every one of the charities listed below – which have been thoroughly vetted by an Impact 100 partner – have critical needs beyond their one-time, transformational grants from Impact 100. If you would like to support their ongoing work, we are pleased to share a new fund that will do just that.
Support our “Multiply the Impact” fund with a donation…
Your gift will ensure these nonprofit organizations can sustain and grow the projects that were initially supported by an Impact 100 partner – and are able to serve even more New Jerseyans.
