Victoria Foundation

Founded in 1924, the Newark-based Victoria Foundation has a two-fold mission:  to improve the lives of children and families in Newark, and to protect water resources and preserve precious open space statewide.  In 2014, the foundation made $12 million in grants, with nearly half supporting neighborhood development--including CDCs, job training, and leadership development.  The foundation is also taking a lead to convene cross-sector leaders in order to develop blueprints mapping out how collective action could address the city’s urban challenges.
