Womanspace Announces New Grants from The Starbucks Foundation & Princeton Area Community Foundation

June 29th 2021 –  Womanspace was awarded a $2,000 Neighborhood Grant from The Starbucks Foundation. The Starbucks Foundation’s Neighborhood Grants program supports grassroots, community-led nonprofit organizations through catalytic investments in the form of small grants. Through this unique program, The Starbucks Foundation invites Starbucks partners (employees) to nominate a local organization in their community. Neighborhood Grants also help build sustained local impact and inspire increased partner engagement with nonprofits organizations that work in our communities.

Womanspace was one of more than 1,300 nonprofits selected to receive a Neighborhood Grant this year. The funds from this grant will go towards continuing our effort to support victims of domestic violence in our region. These funds are intended to address the critical needs of New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents, whose health and livelihood continues to be threatened by the pandemic. We are very pleased to have backing from generous organizations such as The Starbucks Foundation who support Womanspace’s mission. Thank you for helping us continue to provide valuable lifesaving programs and services to survivors during this time.

 

Womanspace was also awarded a $10,000 grant from the NextGen Giving Circle Fund at Princeton Area Community Foundation. NextGen is comprised of millennial donors, who pool their contributions, and then collectively decide which charities will be awarded grants. The Giving Circle was created in 2017 by Jeremy Perlman, a Risk Advisor at Borden Perlman in Ewing, to help the millennial generation learn about philanthropy and nonprofits in the Central Jersey area.

These funds will support Womanspace’s work in protecting families and providing a safety net of supportive services to prevent abuse. We are very pleased to have backing from generous organizations such as the Princeton Area Community Foundation and the NextGen Giving Circle who support Womanspace’s mission. Thank you for helping us continue to provide valuable lifesaving programs and services to survivors during this time.
