2022 Grants for Good Winner

What is the grant for and how will it benefit the community?

NJCDC serves over 4,000 children and families daily with a focus on education, youth development, affordable/supportive housing, and community building as part of their efforts to transform Paterson’s Great Falls Promise Neighborhood into a thriving and sustainable place to live.The $20,000 grant from Invest in Others will be used to provide comprehensive financial literacy education to 330 Paterson high school students.

The grant supported an organization with which I have deep ties in a community that I call home. As such, I take great pleasure knowing that your funding will help hundreds of teens become financially literate and put them on a path to a sound future and ultimately help break the cycle of poverty for many of them.
