Find out what’s working in South Jersey, and leverage your giving for greater impact.   

Proven & Promising puts the extensive knowledge-gathering resources of South Jersey’s corporate foundations, family and individual philanthropists to work for you.  Made possible in part with a grant from Well’s Fargo Regional Foundation, this tool is designed to help donors at every level make prudent decisions about where they give.  Each Proven & Promising recommendation is made by a donor that has given the organization a single grant of at least $10,000 in the last year and they share why they believe it was a wise investment.

Every year, each member of the Proven and Promising network can nominate up to five projects that they have vetted and supported. Nominations for 2016 will be received until Friday, December 30, 2016.  CLICK here to download a Proven and Promising Nomination Form. 

Below you will find a summary of each project or program, and you can even make an online donation to the organization from that page.
