I Am Trenton Community Foundation was founded with the understanding that each and every individual who lives, works, learns or plays in Trenton can contribute to the city. We are an independent, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt community foundation operating under the leadership of an all-volunteer board of trustees, representative of the community, and dedicated to the mission of making Trenton even better through community engagement, building pride in our city, and community-focused giving.
This #GivingTuesday (29 November 2016), stand with us and say “I AM TRENTON“! Your tax deductible contribution transforms our city every day. With contributions from people like YOU, we’re entering our tenth year as a resource for the Trenton community — for Trenton, by Trenton, forever.
Donate now — then post an #unselfie of yourself doing something awesome in or for Trenton with the hashtag #IAmTrenton. We’ll be building this campaign in 2017 – stay tuned!
Since 2010, we’ve given out over $50,000 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.
