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.Read more about our mission here.
CURRENT GRANT OPPORTUNITIES
We are thrilled to launch the very first round of the East Trenton Collaborative Small Grants Program in partnership with the East Trenton Collaborative and Isles, Inc.! This program supports work in the East Trenton planning area, which includes the neighborhoods around North Clinton Avenue.
Since 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.
