The NJ Arts and Culture Renewal Fund has awarded more than $1.4 million to 66 nonprofits statewide.

Those grants bring the total amount of grants awarded to $8.8 million dollars since the fund was established at the Princeton Area Community Foundation in 2020.

“The NJ Arts & Culture Renewal Fund continues to be a critical source of funding for smaller cultural organizations that historically have had less access to philanthropic dollars” said Lynne Toye, Executive Director.
