Newark’s young people and the community deserve and demand that funding is invested thoughtfully, in ways that will have impact for now and the future. We value tremendously the support and investment from all of our donors. FNF is an independent, non-governmental foundation that takes a balanced approach to investing. By supporting and advancing what works, FNF’s goal is to leave Newarkers with the system-wide changes needed for long-term success.
