Caren Kaufman Memorial Grant Program
Sustainable South Jersey is excited to announce our new mini-grant program, created to honor Caren Kaufman, a grassroots activist who was dedicated to sustainability and health. In 2010, Caren was diagnosed with breast cancer. Receiving this unexpected, life-changing news triggered her to research causes; she wondered if environmental factors could have contributed to her illness.
Application submissions for the Caren Kaufman Memorial Grant Program have concluded. Thanks everyone who submitted! Grant awards were recently announced via press release and on Sustainable South Jersey’s website and social media networks!
