Community Foundation of South Jersey Announces New Grant Opportunity

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Community Foundation of South Jersey Invites Local Municipalities to Learn about New Grant Opportunity for Five South Jersey Communities.

Each of the selected communities will have access to up to $100,000 in funding from the Community Foundation of South Jersey.

The Community Foundation of South Jersey, a nonprofit organization that helps South Jersey residents harness the power of philanthropy to transform their communities and the issues they care about most, today announced a new grant opportunity; Transform South Jersey. This opportunity, which opens late September, is available to municipalities with a population of less than 50,000 residents from Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean and Salem counties.

Transform South Jersey is a collaboration between the Community Foundation of South Jersey, New Jersey Health Initiatives (the statewide grantmaking program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), the OceanFirst Foundation, the Orton Family Foundation and the Wells Fargo Regional Community Development Corporation. Using the Orton Family Foundation’s national model, Transform South Jersey will strengthen the social, cultural and economic vibrancy of five South Jersey communities by empowering residents to inform community development and shape the future based on what matters most to them.
