Announcing the Return of the Jersey Give Back Guide

November 16, 2015


We are excited to announce the return of the Jersey Give Back Guide, a Jersey-centric online giving guide featuring some of the Garden State’s most effective and respected nonprofits.


It is designed to make it easy for everyone (that means you!) to give back and get involved with New Jersey nonprofit organizations whether you have $5 or $500 to give.

Using the Jersey Give Back Guide’s online “Generosity Generator,” you can choose from four categories — Community, Arts, Environment and Newark — to learn more about this year’s featured nonprofits. Pick one or more that fits your passion, and in just a few quick clicks, you can make a donation that will go directly to the nonprofit.

Each and every nonprofit is worth your investment.

How do we know? The Dodge Foundation and Victoria Foundation, sponsors of the Guide, chose organizations that excel in collaboration, innovation, and community engagement. All have excellent reputations for their work and reflect the programmatic and geographic diversity of the nonprofit sector in New Jersey.

Just look at this impressive list of organizations you can support through the Jersey Give Back Guide:

This is the third year of the Jersey Give Back Guide. In 2014, you helped raise more than $70,000 to the nonprofit organizations featured in last year’s Jersey Give Back Guide.

Our hope is that you can help us pass the $100,000 mark for the nonprofits part of this year’s Jersey Give Back Guide. We know that with your help, we can get there.

Please help us spread the word about the Jersey Give Back Guide and how simple it is to donate. Tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers, book club, pick-up basketball team, prayer group, yoga class and happy hour companions. Get them to help you make New Jersey an even better place to live, work and play.

Connect with the Generosity Generator on Twitter @JerseyGiveGuide and use #jerseygives when you tell your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram friends about your donation!

Please check out and get busy giving!
