CNJG exists to strengthen and promote effective philanthropy throughout New Jersey. The leading resource for networking and information for New Jersey's philanthropic community, CNJG provides representatives of all types of grantmaking organizations with access to valuable services and meaningful activities to advance their work.

Joining CNJG is easy. Just fill out the application and member profile and send it to us.

Though subject to the board’s approval, we are typically able to activate a membership within 2-3 working days. In no time, you’ll be a member with full access to the unique value CNJG provides.


The membership period begins January 1st and runs through December 31. Grantmakers joining after July 1 will have their first year dues prorated. Dues are based on a donor or organization’s total annual grantmaking. Organizations who choose to do so may calculate their membership dues by using an average of their annual grantmaking over the past three years. Some members choose to make all or a portion of their dues in the form of a grant. For tax purposes, all dues in excess of $670 may be reasonably reported as a grant.
