About Us

Mission

 

Victoria Foundation partners with Black and Brown residents and other marginalized communities in Newark and nonprofit organizations to champion bold strategies that strengthen community power, foster economic justice, promote youth self-determination, and respond to pressing needs.

 

History

Hendon Chubb created the Foundation in 1924 in order to improve the lives of those less fortunate than himself. Named for his mother, Victoria, the Foundation provided assistance to needy individuals through the 1950s. In the 1960s, the foundation began focusing more on Newark and especially on access to education, enrichment, and job opportunities as well as social justice issues such as civil rights and poverty.
