New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund (NJPRF)
The Community Foundation of New Jersey is pleased to be partnering with First Lady Tammy Murphy and other civic leaders to host the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund (NJPRF). This new nonprofit umbrella organization will marshal resources across the state to identify critical needs and fight the economic and social impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s vulnerable communities.
“The COVID-19 virus has already had far-reaching societal ramifications which have overwhelmingly and disproportionately impacted low- to middle-income residents and New Jersey’s small business community,” said Murphy. “We are committed to the task of identifying the most effective interventions, determining community needs, and raising essential funds and awareness as we battle this challenge.”
One hundred percent of donations received online by NJPRF will be used to fight the medical, social, and economic impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s most vulnerable, supporting organizations that provide essential services and aiding those on the front line of the pandemic. The Fund’s administrative costs are supported by grants received for that purpose only. NJPRF’s Board of Directors will have authority over distribution decisions and will consider recommendations from NJPRF Chief Executive Officer, Josh Weinreich, who is serving pro-bono.
