Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily to address the complex needs of vulnerable populations in New Jersey's urban areas by encouraging the reform of health and human services delivery systems.


Established in 1980 in NJ - The foundation was established by the late William B. and the late Marion G. Nicholson. It became active in 2002, in part because of a bequest to the Foundation from their daughter Martha Leigh. The foundation’s geographic focus reflects the Nicholsons’ special interest in New Jersey, where they lived for more than fifty years.
