Please join us in welcoming The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation as an affiliated fund of the Community Foundation of New Jersey!
Through this new partnership, The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation will utilize the grantmaking and administrative support services of CFNJ, thus obviating the need for its own staff and enabling the Foundation to focus on what it does best: to make the dream of summer camp a reality for children with kidney disorders.
For Judy Gottscho Eichinger, chair of the Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation and sister to the late Ruth Gottscho, the decision to partner with CFNJ was a natural one, given CFNJ’s reputation and fiduciary duty of stewarding philanthropic programs such that they become philanthropic legacies that are faithful to a donor’s original intent, yet reflective of evolving needs.
The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation’s board will remain in place and will determine its grants now and into the future.
The entire team at CFNJ has enjoyed working with The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation on a seamless transition, including:
- working with the Foundation’s financial advisors to move the Foundation’s assets,
- onboarding the Foundation to our online donor portal,
- developing a dedicated online donation page,
- taking on management of things like the Foundation’s website and email accounts,
- creating co-branded stationary, and
- meeting with the Foundation’s leadership on a monthly basis.
Above all, the transition was made seamless by The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation’s sincere desire to achieve the greatest possible impact with our ongoing support.
We are grateful for the trust The Ruth Gottscho Kidney Foundation has placed in CFNJ and look forward to extending their philanthropic impact for decades to come!
