Five local non-profit organizations to receive grants from Princeton Chamber

The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Community Development Fund is awarding $40,000 in grants to five local non-profits for 2017.

The 2017 grant recipients are: CASA, Kidsbridge, Millhill Child and Family Development, Womanspace, and the Princeton Blairstown Center.

“With these grants, the Chamber and the Chamber Foundation continue to invest in our region by providing financial support for the vital work of these outstanding community-based organizations,” said Rick Coyne, chairman of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Partner at WithumSmith+Brown. “In partnership with the Princeton Area Community Foundation and the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Chamber awards grants to large and small regional not for profit organizations. The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce is the only Chamber in Central New Jersey with an established ongoing grant partnership program for nonprofit organizations.”

The grants will be presented officially at the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon on Nov. 2. The 2017 round of grants brings the total amount of financial support that the chamber has awarded to local non-profit organizations since the program’s  inception in 2013 to more than $165,000 .

“The partnership of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Princeton Area Community Foundation is a powerful force supporting non-profits organizations in the region,” said Anna Lustenberg, chairwomen of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “Everyone at the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation is delighted and gratified that as a result of setting up the Community Development Fund, we continue to distribute annual grants to local nonprofit organizations.”
