How to Apply

Victoria Foundation welcomes proposals from nonprofit organizations in good standing whose work forwards the mission of the Foundation.  Our grants are restricted to programs that serve residents in Newark, NJ, except for environment and land acquisition grants that impact the state of New Jersey.

Currently, we consider proposals in the following four Program Areas.  We encourage all interested organizations to carefully review the Goals and Priorities, as well as past Grantees of each Program Area, to determine if your project is a fit:


Organizations may only submit proposals once per calendar year (Jan-Dec) through the following mechanisms:

Prospective Applicants

First-time applicants, and organizations who are not current grantees of the Foundation, may submit a Letter of Intent.

The deadline for spring was mid-January.  Fall 2019 dates will be posted in June.  

Returning Grantees

The link to apply for current grantees will be emailed directly to the grantee organization’s primary point of contact. 

Emails will be sent in mid-December 2018, with an application deadline of Thursday, January 17, 2019.

If you did not receive the link or have any other questions, please contact the Program Officer listed on your most recent award letter, or via our Contact page.

Land Acquisition Applicants

Proposals for Land Acquisition are accepted year-round for support to preserve open space in the Highlands, Pinelands, and Kittatinny Ridge and Valley region.
