I Am Trenton Community Foundation was founded to put resources where they matter most — on the ground. What makes Trenton even better every day is the tireless commitment of people who care — people who teach their neighbors about flooding, organize festivals, help trauma victims heal, plant trees, clean their neighborhoods, teach kids robotics, install bike pumps and mini-libraries, lead yoga workshops, record oral histories, make films, and still find time to have fun with their friends. We raise funds directly and disburse them in an annual citywide grant round, and partner with other organizations for neighborhood-focused initiatives. 

Citywide Grants

Our annual grant round funds projects anywhere in Trenton.
