OceanFirst Foundation of Toms River has awarded $150,000 in grants to nonprofits throughout central and southern New Jersey through its Arts and Cultural Grant Program.
Grants will support a wide range of activities including live theater and music, museums, galleries, festivals and other special events happening throughout the year.
“We have so many amazing places to visit and things to see. Among them are the many vibrant and creative museums, galleries, theaters and community spaces where local artists, performers and historians gather to share their individual and collective work for all to experience. We’re proud of our history of giving to the arts and cultural community with more than $2.4 million in contributions since 1996 and we’re delighted to continue our tradition of giving this year.” said Katherine Durante, executive director of OceanFirst Foundation.
