New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund Raises $20M
One hundred percent of all online donations will go directly to help those in need

April 13, 2020 – Trenton, NJ.

Incorporated less than three weeks ago, New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund is excited to announce that nearly $20M in funds have been raised to date.

We are grateful to Ray Chambers, Laura and John Overdeck and the David Tepper Charitable Foundation, Inc. both for stepping up at the outset with significant financial resources, and also for committing individual teams to work full time on this effort at every level of the organization. Their contributions are enabling the fund to have a direct impact on the most vulnerable across the great state of New Jersey.

Each day, major partners are joining us at the highest levels including ADP Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, The Pfizer Foundation, PSEG Foundation, Joan Rechnitz, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Samsung, Ann and Thomas Unterberg, Wilf Family Foundation as well as anonymous donors.

Importantly, the fund is harnessing donations from across the depth and breadth of the state as the collective muscle is empowering. We have individuals, unions, foundations and corporations from New Jersey and across the country joining us in this effort. We are committed to stretching every dollar as we together tackle the COVID-19 impact on our New Jersey family. With a donor list topping 2,000 strong which can be found on our website and is updated weekly, we share with you here a variety of our significant supporters exhibiting the breadth and depth of our partners to date. Please, join us by going to today and making a contribution to join our efforts.
