FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders is inviting charitable organizations to join the 2019/2020 New Jersey Employee Charitable Campaign.

“Independent charitable organizations are invited to join the County’s annual charitable campaign,” said Freeholder Director Thomas Arnone who is the Monmouth County 2019/2020 campaign chairman. “We know that there are many local not-for-profit organizations in our community doing phenomenal work that may not know about this fundraising opportunity. This is a chance for local charities to connect with public employees here in Monmouth County.”

Interested charities must submit a completed application by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 4, 2019. To be eligible to participate, organizations must be a registered 501(c)3 and have raised at least $15,000 each year for the past two years.

Last year, public employees in Monmouth County and its partners throughout the state donated over $747,000 to support the work of more than 800 charitable organizations right here in Monmouth County and around the globe.

“I am extremely proud of the County’s ongoing commitment to the annual charitable campaign,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, who was the 2018/2019 campaign chairman. “I strongly encourage any qualified charity to join the upcoming New Jersey Employee Charitable Campaign. This is a wonderful demonstration of how the caring employees of Monmouth County give back to the community.”
