OUR IMPACT

IMPACTSince 2010, we’ve given out over $60,000 to over 60 community-driven projects in Trenton from our General Fund, and partnered with others to give out and administer over $50,000 in neighborhood-specific grants in the West Ward and North Clinton Ave areas.

Our grantees have turned overgrown lots into community hubs, taught robotics, collected stories, made films, danced, done yoga, gotten kids into college, and installed bike pumps around the city. They embody the community spirit that makes Trenton better every day. Read more here.
