Financial gifts made to organizations and foundations are collected, managed and disbursed by those entities. NJ Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NJVOAD), the NJ Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM), and the NJ Governor’s Office of Volunteerism do not promote any one organization over another and do not have any involvement in how funds are managed or disbursed. These organizations have been vetted by NJVOAD, but you are encouraged to visit Guidestar, Charity Navigator, the Better Business Bureau and other watchdog sites to find the best match for you.
