The Princeton Area Community Foundation Programs

The Community Foundation makes grants from its community grantmaking and donor-advised and field of interest funds. Community grants are made through a formal grants process (interested organizations should visit www.pacf.org for guidelines) and benefit organizations working to build community and/or to address the needs of low-income individuals and families across the greater Mercer County area. Donor-advised grants follow donor recommendations and are given to organizations in and out of Mercer County.
Donors and others are encouraged to use the expertise of the Community Foundation.
