Princeton Area Community Foundation

The Princeton Area Community Foundation promotes philanthropy and builds community across Mercer County and central New Jersey. It helps people and companies make effective charitable gifts and awards grants to nonprofits. Since its founding in 1991, the Community Foundation has grown into an organization with more than $140 million in assets and made grants of more than $95 million, including nearly $16 million in 2016.

We believe:

  • our community flourishes as philanthropy thrives;
  • all of our children deserve opportunities; and
  • working together with people who care, businesses, and nonprofits, we can address our region’s most difficult challenges.
