Nina Stack's final message to CNJG Members.
You may have noticed over the past few months that here at the Council we’ve been sharing a lot of information regarding the 2020 Census, and how essential it is for philanthropy to recognize why a full and thorough count matters to our work.
I am writing to let you know that Council of New Jersey Grantmakers’ President and CEO Nina Stack, notified the Council’s Board of Trustees that she will be stepping down in June to become the Executive Director of The Champlin Foundation, the largest private foundation in the state of Rhode Island.
A regular contributor to the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Blog, Nina's posts discuss issues critical to philanthropy today.
The 2017 President’s Report is our annual look back at CNJG’s robust programming and services in benefit to our members and by extension, the communities that our members serve.
Phil●an●thro●py: Love of Humankind. This is the translation, the definition of our field, our work. For the members of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers it is literally our job…to advance the love of humankind.
Nina Stack, CNJG's President, is interviewed on "One on One with Steve Adubato" about the Council's work, including our 20th anniversary, the Newark Philanthropic Liaison, and our work after Superstorm Sandy.
CNJG celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2017 marked by extraordinary progress and service to members over this time. As the nexus for the philanthropic community in New Jersey, the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers’ body of work grows more robust every year. This is clearly evident by the exponential growth in programs and services since CNJG was founded in 1987. However, this proliferation in programs and services does not reflect the full realm of CNJG's transformation over twenty years. CNJG has evolved to become a leader in the state, spearheading important and significant initiatives throughout our history.
Removing the longstanding ban on partisan political activity by charitable and philanthropic organizations presents a severe threat to the integrity and wellbeing of those organizations.
On March 8, 2017, the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers' Board of Trustees approved that CNJG would take an official position opposing the repeal of the Johnson Amendment by signing on to the "Community Letter in Support of Nonpartisanship”
