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.
