Elevate Toms River

The program operates through the United Way of Ocean County (UWOC). The foundation funds UWOC to run executive development programs to elevate the non-profit sector’s knowledge base, increase opportunities for collaboration and cross pollination of ideas. Every February, the Executive Team and Board of the UWOC will nominate candidates who have attended and fully participated in the Elevate Program for potential inclusion into the Impact Toms River Program. Only Elevate Toms River participants are eligible for Impact Toms River funding.

Engage Toms River

The focus is to give a platform to and support local artists through multiple programs each year, where the minimum grand prize will be $10,000. The foundation’s impact goal is to give every member of our community an opportunity to engage with all form of the arts.

Impact Toms River

The program allows the foundation to directly contact organizations through the Elevate Toms River Program. These organizations have the potential to grow their social impact with sustained and strategic help and support from the foundation. The process is truly collaborative with an intense pre-engagement discussion, followed by capacity review, and then a discussion about the greater impact the organization wants to achieve. The foundation will help the organization achieve their greater impact with the financial support necessary to grow its team and vision.
