(Bergen County, New Jersey; June 30, 2022) -- The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation announces its support of the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team with a fiscal sponsorship.
The grassroots green team based in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey undertakes a mission to increase public engagement and awareness of local environmental issues by bringing together residents to create a more sustainable community.
"As a resident of Hasbrouck Heights, I am thrilled to be in a position to support the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team with a fiscal sponsorship to further their mission. Working together, we build more resilient communities, beautify our neighborhoods, and grow towards our aligned goals of environmental sustainability and resiliency,” said Mary Blanusa, Executive Director, Northern New Jersey Community Foundation.
"The Hasbrouck Heights Green Team is excited for our partnership with NNJCF! By achieving an official nonprofit status, we will be able to apply for grants to bring money and programs to Hasbrouck Heights. This will further our mission to beautify the borough, expand environmental volunteerism and better inform our residents on environmental issues," said Amanda Reppond, a member of the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team.
Fiscal Sponsorship Meets a Need
The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation provides fiscal sponsorship to emerging community-based organizations like the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team that are addressing gaps in local services. Fiscal sponsorships have been provided to several organizations, including Bergen County LGBTQ+ Alliance, Cliffside Park Arts Association, and Creative Placemaking Communities to build the capacity of emerging leaders, while also expanding the regional nonprofit ecosystem.
With the NNJCF's fiscal sponsorship, community based groups operate as a nonprofit program under the foundation's umbrella. The foundation provides a range of services to these emerging community leaders: capacity building, networking, and administrative support, as they work locally to design, implement, and grow programs meeting local needs. Fiscal sponsorship opportunities are provided to organizations with clear programmatic objectives, a defined leadership team, and a mission aligned to NNJCF’s priority areas, particularly the Arts and Environment.
