Women's Association

Promoting, advocating, and funding NJPAC since the very beginning.


The Women’s Association of NJPAC (WA) was formed in 1994, when the building was just starting to take shape. Since then, it has contributed over $40 million to NJPAC and its Arts Education programs. The WA has been and remains the single largest annual funding source for the Arts Center.


Join the Women's Association now to play a part in the ongoing renaissance of the city of Newark and share in the excitement and energy of the Arts Center. 


Through programming, activities and initiatives, the WA strives to bring new faces to Newark and NJPAC. More than 2,000 members strong and growing, many of the most influential and powerful women in the state lend their time, talent and treasure to the organization. WA events, like the annual Spotlight Gala and annual Spring Luncheon & Auction, are not just the talk of the town – they are major fundraisers and important networking occasions. 


A one-year membership to NJPAC includes a complimentary year-long membership to the Women’s Association.
