Timeline for Grant Application CHANGED for 2018

The Foundation has decided to change their grant timeline. Going forward, grant applications will be due by August 1st and funding will be distributed by November 1st. Please look for updated application information by June 1st.

Additionally, the Foundation will no longer be accepting applications from organizations in NJ. Our ties to NJ have weakened, and the number of outstanding organizations we have become connected with in FL, NY and PA is so strong we can no longer support NJ organizations.
