Although the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation became a national philanthropy in 1972 and has operated on a national scale since then, it also has continued funding a limited number of local institutions and projects in the New Brunswick area and throughout New Jersey. It does so in part to honor the legacy of its founder, and in part to recognize the special responsibilities to the communities and the state in which it is located.The Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF) will use this award to establish a donor-advised fund called the "RWJF Special Contributions Fund at the Princeton Area Community Foundation" (PACF). PACF will use the fund to facilitate charitable grants (usually not more than $50,000) as recommended to PACF by Foundation management. The Foundation will develop criteria for use of this Fund consistent with PACF guidelines, existing laws and regulations related to charitable gifts, and any additional restrictions the Foundation may wish to impose. When the Foundation suggests a grant to a public charity, PACF will process the recommendation and issue a check and letter to the recipient.
