After members of our volunteer grant review committees spent the spring thoroughly vetting the organizations that applied for our core mission grant, and our members voted, we are proud to announce that we have awarded a $100,000 grant to Family Promise of Southwest New Jersey.

Family Promise of Southwest NJ provides homeless families with an opportunity to achieve stability by providing shelter, food, case management, and hospitality while simultaneously utilizing resources within local congregations and the community. Over the next two years, Glassboro-based organization will use our grant for their Promising Futures Program which supports families through financial literacy training, job search assistance, connections to resources within our community, and assistance finding permanent affordable housing.

 “This is a wonderful opportunity,” explained Rosemarie Parker, Family Promise Chief Executive Officer. “This grant will help families stay where they are and prevent them from becoming homeless.” 

In addition, New Jersey Agricultural Society’s Farmers Against Hunger program, which is based in Bordentown, and Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in Medford will each receive $50k general operating grants.

“Each and every one of our 200 members is helping our region through their membership, which allows us to award grants to nonprofits and empower South Jersey women,” said Judy C. Greenberg, President, Impact100 South Jersey. “We are all changemakers, moving our community forward, working in partnership to raise up our local nonprofits for even greater success.”

Thank you to all our members and supporters for helping us increase our impact during an unusually challenging year.
