Annual Campaign

In a world filled with challenges, we give back, get things done and leave things better than we found them.  Thank you to everyone who believes in the power of coming together. 

The work is never done. Donations to the 2024/25 Annual Campaign may be made between July 2024 and June 2025.

Our Signature Programs

Your gift supports our advocacy programs on issues like reproductive rights, gun violence prevention, voting rights and more that impact women, children and families. 

Your gift is a lifeline for the the nonsectarian Center for Women which provides vitally important career and support services for women who are entering or re-entering the workforce.  When we uplift women, they reinvest in their children and neighborhoods, creating stronger, more sustainable communities now and in the future. 

Your contribution to our annual Back 2 School Store helps support underserved children in Essex County. We have served more than 10,000 students so far, and we don’t plan to stop! Put a smile on the face of a child as they “shop” at the Store for brand new coats, clothes, books and other essential items to help them get ready to learn.


Connect.  Volunteer. Advocate.  NCJW/Essex is a place to find forever friendships while making an impact and getting things done.  You can share this experience with a friend or family member by giving the gift of membership.
