What We Do

We provide funding for Sussex County Arts, History and Social programs,

distributing grant funds provided by the State of New Jersey to approved nonprofit organizations. 

We retain a small sum from these funds for expenses incurred administering the grant programs.

However, this covers just a fraction of our costs.

We must make up the difference with the help of our sponsors and supporters,

contributions by our members, and our fundraising activities.
