Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida

In response to Hurricane Ida and the devastating impact it has had on many New Jersey communities, CNJG has gathered numerous resources, articles, and information on the philanthropic response. CNJG encourages you to share these with your nonprofit and community partners. Please let us know if there is information we have missed.

CNJG Actions

CNJG in partnership with NJVOAD presented a funder briefing for the recovery efforts in New Jersey on September 10.

CNJG has created a new Disaster Response listserve for members to share information and resources, coordinate on funding, and hear about upcoming programs regarding relief and recovery efforts for all disasters that affect New Jersey communities. If you are interested in being on this listserve, please email Craig Weinrich.

CNJG will be retiring the NJ Sandy Response listserve at the end of 2021. If you are on the Sandy Response listserve, and want to be on this new catch-all listserve for disaster response, you will need to email Craig to sign up for the Disaster Response listserve. CNJG is still maintaining the COVID-19 listserve.

At the October 2021 CNJG Board of Trustees meeting, Keith Adams, Executive Director of the NJ Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NJVOAD) gave a presentation on the ongoing challenges facing New Jersey communities. This presentation (below) was the Board’s “Mission Moment” for the meeting, a time to focus on a big picture issue affecting the philanthropic community in New Jersey.
