About the NonProfit Information Center
New Jersey's Nonprofit Information Center portal is as a one-stop shop for nonprofits in New Jersey seeking to utilize various funding sources and volunteer opportunities available through the State.
In May 2011, Governor Christie signed into law N.J.S.A. § 52:16A-110 requiring the Department of State to maintain, in a single, accessible location, a directory of State departments and agencies that provide resources to assist nonprofits in their daily operations. Accordingly, below, please find links to department and agency webpages dedicated to nonprofit resources. These resources include available funding sources (along with eligibility criteria for such funding), various volunteer opportunities available with or through the State, and other information related to nonprofit operation, such as forms and guidance documents.
New Jersey's Nonprofit Information Center portal is an invaluable resource for any nonprofit seeking to operate in New Jersey. Simply put, this portal will save your organization time and money – resources that can more appropriately be devoted to your organization's core mission.
