Donate to The Community Chest
The Community Chest annual campaign runs from October 1st to September 30th every year. Each year we reach out to individuals and businesses and ask them to support our important work. We welcome contributions throughout the year.
Donors may make contributions of any size to The Community Chest. The two most popular ways are by mailing a check to our office at The Community Chest, 122 South Van Brunt Street, 2nd Floor, Englewood, NJ 07631 (please note that this is our new address) or by making an online contribution at www.communitychestofenglewood.org. Gifts of stocks or bonds or from Donor Advised Funds are also welcome. When making stock donations donors should call the Executive Director to discuss arrangements.
Donors of $1,000 and above are entered into our Golden Feather Society. Membership in The Society is an honored position among Community Chest supporters. A list of these individuals may be found in the Donors section of the website.
Donors wishing to make provisions for remembering The Community Chest in their wills (planned giving) are encouraged to contact the Executive Director as well.
Several large corporations have matching gifts programs and donors are encouraged to consult with their employers about whether a matching gift program is available. This is an ideal way to maximize contributions.

Donations made in memory of someone who has passed away are a wonderful way of celebrating a person’s life. These may be made by noting that this is a “memorial” contribution when the check is mailed in. If the donation is made online please call the office (at 201-568-7474) to make sure that a notation is made in our database and that the names of those to be notified are specified.
A wonderful way of honoring someone you love and respect is by making a contribution to The Community Chest in his/her name. These contributions may be made by mail or online as well. Please be sure to provide all of the identifying information about the person so that an appropriate letter can be sent to them.
Often people have ideas about projects in our community they would like to support. The Community Chest is eager to hear about your ideas and to discuss our own ideas about how we can carry out our mission of strengthening the community through partnership, leadership and philanthropy. Please contact our Executive Director to discuss these opportunities.
