The Fund for New Jersey Awards $823,000 in Grants

Thursday, April 1, 2021

The Trustees of The Fund for New Jersey awarded $823,000 in grants to eleven nonprofit organizations at their March 2021 quarterly Board meeting. Grants were awarded to organizations in the areas of environmental justice, immigration, housing, and public media.

Kiki Jamieson, President of The Fund for New Jersey, stated, “The Fund for New Jersey is pleased to support organizations working to increase affordable housing, advance worker rights, defend immigrant rights, and support high-quality journalism in New Jersey.”

“The Fund is particularly proud to support a cohort of immigrant organizations working to make New Jersey a place that welcomes immigrants and supports their opportunities for economic mobility and social inclusion. Too often, undocumented immigrants are marginalized or forgotten. Undocumented immigrants have largely been excluded from receipt of government relief assistance throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, yet they continue to be essential frontline workers, working in farms, food factories, grocery stores, and more. The immigrant rights organizations that The Fund supports advocate every day to correct these injustices.”
