About Us


The mission of the New Jersey State Museum Foundation is to support the collections, exhibitions and programs of the New Jersey State Museum through advocacy, fundraising, promotion and volunteerism.



The vision of the New Jersey State Museum Foundation is to maintain a strong and dynamic organization with the necessary resources and capacity to grow and adapt to the changing needs of the Foundation and the Museum.  The organization functions independently of the State and the Museum, but works collaboratively to further the Museum’s mission.

Further, the Foundation will have a large presence in the community and an ever-growing business and corporate membership.  The Foundation will provide compelling opportunities for its members to both actively participate in the work of the Museum and to engage in social and cultural activities related to the Museum.
