After a year of working in partnership with community and with guidance from our consulting partners, The Novalia Collective, we are excited to share with you the results of our strategic plan including:

  • reimagined mission, vision, values
  • overall strategic priorities
  • funding priorities
  • grantmaking process

Below you will find the Strategic Plan Executive Summary (which includes the information above), as well as slides and a recording from our info sessions, and ways to connect with us.

Our website will be updated to reflect our new strategic plan in stages in the next couple of weeks. 

We are so excited and grateful to continue the journey with more clarity, collaboration, and community as we work towards an equitable, just, and vibrant Central Jersey Shore. We look forward to our continued partnership in community.
