Neighbors Helping Neighbors

With the motto "Neighbors Helping Neighbors", The Chest's mission is to lead initiatives and support nonprofits that make communities stronger and benefit the people of eastern Bergen County in New Jersey. Established in September 1933, the founders' vision was to fill a chest with individuals and businesses' generous contributions and to empty the contents by awarding grant funds to support worthy projects led by local nonprofits in the area.

Funds raised in The Chest's annual campaign support nonprofits' programs providing social, cultural, recreational, and educational services to residents in the area. Each year, The Community Chest undertakes its mission with increased generosity to help people in need in eastern Bergen County. The Chest’s Board of Managers implements a thorough process of screening, research, and monitoring to assure the funds raised are directed to the most worthy programs and the areas of greatest need.
