Past grants were given to local groups like The Jersey City LaCrosse, Kismet of Kings, Team Wilderness, Team Walker, Art House Productions, Educational Arts Team, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. These organizations execute creative and structured events, focusing on supporting childhood development and enrichment.
Beyond the donations we make, our goal is to raise awareness for our charity partners and build connections between the charities, our volunteers, event attendees and community so we can make a brighter future for our community's children. Jersey City Youth Foundation has no paid staff and strives to maximize the amount of our grants by using volunteers and obtaining donations in-kind whenever possible. We look forward to expanding our impact and reach as we grow our events.
