SAPF: A legacy for good

We are a 501(c)(3) community foundation that fosters philanthropy in the Summit NJ area by identifying local needs and offering donors flexible ways to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.

  • We solicit and invest funds prudently to ensure long-term growth that supports philanthropic activities.
  • We use competitive grants and the wishes of our donors to meet the needs of our community.
  • We facilitate collaboration, information, and solutions for both donors and service providers.
  • We strive to enhance our impact on the local community through education, partnerships, and awareness activities.

SAPF administers three main kinds of funds: the general unrestricted fund, restricted-purpose funds, and donor-advised funds. All funds support work of not-for-profit agencies in Summit and nearby communities. We also administer many scholarship funds.

We would be happy to talk with you about

  • different ways you can leave a legacy.
  • grant opportunities for tax-exempt organizations.
