Beginning immediately after Superstorm Sandy struck New Jersey, The Council of New Jersey Grantmakers has been working intensively to share information, resources, best practice strategies, and news relating to New Jersey’s relief and recovery efforts.
Please visit CNJG’s Post-Sandy Response section for a wealth of information relating to NJ’s Relief and Recovery effort along with NJ’s philanthropic response, best practice guides, nonprofits on the ground, latest news articles and announcements, and the audio recordings of the Council’s Educational Disaster Response conference call series.
