A Gathering of Givers: New Jersey Women Making an Impact

New Jersey women give a lot, in ways that are as boundless as they are visionary.

On March 8, International Women’s Day, please join us to hear inspirational stories from some of New Jersey’s most resourceful and dynamic community builders in a special conversation presented by the Women’s Association of NJPAC, the Community Foundation of New Jersey and Impact100 Essex.

A diverse panel of women who represent giving circles, local family foundations, nonprofits and corporations will share their unique insights on how investing time, talent and treasure can strengthen communities.

Twenty-five years ago, nine women formed a group that blossomed into the Women’s Association of NJPAC, a powerhouse that has generated $52 million for the state’s anchor cultural institution. For even longer, since 1979, the Community Foundation of New Jersey’s women-led funds have granted hundreds of millions of dollars into communities and causes they care about. By advancing concepts such as collaborative giving and investing in women’s ventures, women are being championed as forward-thinking philanthropists.

We all have something to give. You’re invited for a morning of innovation and inspiration with these accomplished contributors. All of us are sure to discover new forms of connection – through family, faith, culture or career – in supporting and empowering our communities.

Tammy Snyder MurphyFirst Lady of New Jersey
