Women's Association

Promote, Fund, Advocate.

The Women’s Association of NJPAC (WA) is celebrating 25 years and over $51 million raised to support NJPAC and programs that enrich the lives of our current and future generations of cultural citizens. When the WA was established in 1994, its organizers could be counted on two hands. Since that time, the WA has grown – to some 2,000 members strong today – to help NJPAC achieve its dreams. Many of the most influential and powerful women in the state lend their time, talent and treasure to support arts education for our young, champion Newark’s remarkable evolution, and advance NJPAC as a home for world-class artistry. For years, the WA has worked with the Arts Center to fulfill its mission to innovate, educate, collaborate and advocate.

The Women’s Association connects women who are impassioned by the arts and who embrace the importance the arts play in children’s lives and in the brightness of their futures. We serve as ambassadors for the arts who assemble and engage women from divergent communities throughout the great state of New Jersey to support the cultural, educational, and artistic vision of NJPAC.


Count yourself among many of the most influential and powerful women in the state who lend us their time and talents. And in return, we provide like-minded women with opportunities to laugh together, exchange ideas, and enjoy the arts. The collaborative nature of the group is to plan events, initiatives, and fundraising goals and work to see them come to fruition not to mention forge long-lasting friendships and business connections.
