Recommendations for Giving Tuesday

If it has been your privilege to give more than you might otherwise this year (and by the looks of it, that is true of many fundholders!), it has been our privilege to steward that giving.

Now it’s time for one more push. 

As we said in the Star-Ledger last week, we encourage all New Jersey residents who feel fortunate this year to reach out and give to those who need it most by supporting the hard-working organizations serving our communities and neighbors in this challenging time.

Let’s use #GivingTuesday as a way to support those organizations doing amazing work in our communities – on and off the front lines. 

We encourage you to visit the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund or the South Jersey COVID-19 Response Fund, scan our real-time list of giving opportunities, or take a look at the recent work of our fundholders for inspiration.

If you have questions, you can always reach a member of our grants administration team: Karen Arias (, Viridiana Solis (, Margarethe Laurenzi (, or Lee Albright in South Jersey ( We’re available seven days a week and most hours of the day to talk through potential giving opportunities with you.

Wishing you well,
