Making Trenton Even Better... Together

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.

  • OUR IMPACT

    IMPACTSince 2009, we’ve given out over $25,000 to over 50 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.

    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.
