New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Foundation

The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Foundation (NJCCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preparing underserved student and young adult populations for postsecondary education and success in the workforce. We partner with national non-profits, K-12 schools, community-based organizations, institutes of higher education, NJ-based non-profit organizations, workforce development boards and government agencies, and other strategic stakeholders to prepare young adults of all abilities for the increasingly competitive worlds of college and careers.


As the non-profit arm of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, the NJCCF serves as the voice of business to young adults throughout the Garden State. The NJCCF leverages the 100 year reputation of the State Chamber and the collective authority of Chamber members as potential future employers to share insights, data and training with today’s young adults through multiple partnerships.

Since 1996, the NJCCF has been providing thought-provoking, effective programs, workshops, games and activities that result in students and young adults taking education seriously, getting and keeping jobs and improving their economic and social outlook. The work of the NJCCF today will have a positive impact on our business community for years to come by ensuring entry-level employees have the skills necessary for success.
