Each year our firm selects a public charity that we feel captures the spirit of the season, and contributes on behalf of our clients and friends.
In 2020, researching many worthy organizations, we are mindful of the devastation that Covid-19 continues to wreak, even with vaccines at hand. We are pleased to donate to the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund (NJPRF), www.njprf.org, which provides aid across multiple important dimensions. Areas of priority include food security, healthcare hubs, telemedicine, education assistance, housing relief, and help for small businesses.
While the impact of the virus is worldwide, we chose this local charity because we were able to check up on it. The NJPRF has provided over $19 million in aid to 460 non-profits in all 21 New Jersey counties. After reading that every dollar raised by NJPRF goes directly to those in need, we sought confirmation and received a prompt note: “Yes, it is very true that 100% of donations go toward grants to help residents across the state. Most of our staff and expenses are volunteer-based or donated, which is how we are able to secure all proceeds for the distribution of grants.” As the Covid-19 pandemic evolves, the NJPRF will keep working to stop the spread, support the healthcare community, provide help for the vulnerable, and rebuild.
