Help Us Bring Summer Camp Fun to KidsJanuary 8, 2019
Remember how much fun you had at camp as a kid? We’re excited to bring that life-changing and joyful experience to young people this summer and will partner with the very best nonprofits in our footprint to provide $100,000 in Summer Camp Scholarships.
Past recipients of Summer Camp Grants have offered all kinds of interesting, safe and engaging activities including Scouting, STEAM education, opera, farming, theater and youth empowerment. Organizations selected to receive Summer Camp Grants must agree to use funds awarded to provide camp scholarships of up to $250 per child to cover the cost of a camp experience.

The Foundation will thoroughly review all submissions and make a final decision on grants to be awarded. Please note that applicant organizations must provide services within the OceanFirst Bank footprint and have 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the IRS. In addition, applicants should be registered in New Jersey as a charity and perform a certified annual audit if required to do so. We confirm tax-exempt status and NJ Charity Registration each time an organization applies.
Organizations that have not previously received a grant from OceanFirst Foundation should first contact the Foundation office to be screened for eligibility.
