Anti-hate and Non-discrimination Statement

HFNJ is committed to an environment that does not promote or tolerate hate of any kind.  As such we are both committed in principle and practice, and request that all grantees adhere to the following statement:

The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, founded by the Jewish community, is rooted in the qualities of tzedakah (charity and righteousness) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). As such, we are committed to ensuring that the organizations and grants we support share similar values of building a more just world. Organizations that we fund represent that they, and the funds used from our grants, do not promote hate or antisemitism, discrimination based on race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, veteran or disability status. Organizations funded by HFNJ warrant that they have in place policies and procedures to ensure that grant funds will not be used to negatively affect the actual and perceived safety and wellbeing of staff, clients, community partners and others and that your board of trustees and staff are committed to such principles.
