How are Charities Approved to Participate?
To be a part of the New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign, nonprofit organizations must apply each year to participate along with documentation that is reviewed for eligibility by the Employees Charitable Campaign Steering Committee. Once a charity is approved to participate, they are listed in the ECC Reference/Resource Code Book. State/local employees can designate contributions to any approved charity listed in the code book.
It is the responsibility of the charity to apply each year. The 2020 application submissions were due on March 2, 2020. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 NJECC. Applications for the 2021 campaign will open around December 2020 – please check back at that time for more information.
Questions may be directed to the Campaign Manager; Susan O’Brien at (609) 477-8306 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Each charitable organization accepted into the NJECC must be a registered charity in full compliance with the registration requirements of New Jersey law, unless it is a religious entity or an educational institution. To confirm the registration status of an agency or request the charitable registration number, call the Division of Consumer Affairs Charities Registration Section at 973-504-6215, visit their website. If the agency is not in full compliance with the registration requirements, it will not be accepted into the campaign.
