Lawrence Township Community Foundation (LTCF)
Grants of up to $5,000 to New Jersey nonprofit organizations to enhance the lives of Lawrence Township residents. Programs may fall in the areas of community development, youth, health, wellness, and seniors, arts and humanities, emergency support, and sustainability and environment.
Priority will be given to projects that meet new, emerging needs in Lawrence Township, rather than underwriting expenses in annual operating budgets.

Art and Humanities
Arts and culture are integral parts of any community. Grants from LTCF help provide programs to educate, entertain, and uplift residents and visitors to the community.

Lawrence Township is an ever-growing community, full of diverse needs and opportunities. LTCF grants help address community concerns and enrich residents’ lives.
Sustainability and Environment
