The Princeton Area Community Foundation is a public charity serving central New Jersey. We enable individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to create permanent charitable funds that help their communities meet the challenges of changing times. We invest and administer these funds, award grants and scholarships, and provide an array of services to promote philanthropy and support our local nonprofit sector.

Your Community Foundation is overseen by a board of community leaders and a professional staff who are committed to improving the quality of life throughout the greater Mercer County region–and who strive to uphold the organization’s “five values”: generous, fair, creative, courageous, and lasting.
