Mission:

Victoria seeks to advance the preservation, restoration and stewardship of open spaces and of watersheds in New Jersey.  This includes conservation of lands that protect the State’s drinking water, with special attention given to open space under threat of inappropriate development. Victoria Foundation also seeks to promote a sustainable urban environment in Newark that supports the ability of children and families to live productive and healthy lives.

Goals and Priorities:

  • The permanent protection of environmentally-sensitive open space in the New Jersey Highlands, the Pine Barrens, and the Kittatinny Ridge & Valley region.
  • A strong statewide nonprofit land trust and conservation community.
  • Appropriate stewardship and ecological restoration of open spaces in the Foundation’s target giving areas.
  • Improvements in Newark’s environment that advance environmental justice by expanding green spaces, reducing exposure to pollution and toxins, promoting sustainability initiatives, and demonstrating innovative practices that mitigate the impacts of climate change.
