County seeks additional charities to join
employee giving campaign
Unaffiliated charitable organizations must apply by March 2

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders is inviting charitable organizations to join the 2020/2021 New Jersey Employee Charitable Campaign.

“Independent charitable organizations from Monmouth County are invited to join this annual charitable campaign,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone who is the 2020/2021 campaign chair. “The County knows that there are many local not-for-profit organizations in our community doing phenomenal work that may not be aware of this fundraising opportunity. This is a chance for local charities to connect with public employees here in Monmouth County and throughout the State.”

Interested charities must submit a completed application by 5 p.m. on March 2, 2020. To be eligible to participate, organizations must be a registered 501(c)3 and have raised at least $15,000 each year for the past two years.

Last year, public employees in Monmouth County donated over $22,000 to support the work of more than 1,000 charitable organizations right here in Monmouth County and around the globe.

“I am exceptionally delighted by the County’s unending commitment to the annual charitable campaign,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, who was the 2018/2019 campaign chair. “I strongly encourage any qualified charity to join the 2020 New Jersey Employee Charitable Campaign.”
