In 2024, OceanFirst Foundation will invest approximately $1.5 million in nonprofit partners across our footprint through various grant programs.
We concentrate our grantmaking around four priority areas: Health and Wellness, Housing, Improving Quality of Life, and Youth Development and Education. In addition, special grant opportunities and initiatives support emerging needs and priorities of the Foundation.
If your organization is seeking a grant, the best way to get started is to carefully review the information provided on this website for details on specific grant programs offered, eligibility requirements, and how to apply. Once you’ve checked everything out, we’re happy to connect via phone or to schedule an online chat to answer any questions. If you’re applying for the first time, have new leadership, or simply think we would benefit from visiting your program site, we can arrange a visit. We love to see our partners impact in action but know that site visits are not a requirement.
Please schedule time to connect early so any questions can be addressed before application deadlines.
