Millhill Child & Family Development receives Greater Mercer Grant from the Princeton Area Community Foundation


TRENTON, NJ (August 20, 2015) – The Princeton Area Community Foundation awarded Millhill Child & Family Development a $35,000 operating grant to further build capacity by supporting the implementation of the newly updated five-year strategic plan.

“The support and endorsement of the Princeton Area Community Foundation over the years is invaluable to our ability to help children and families,” explains Cynthia Oberkofler, Executive Director.  “Our board and staff are committed to our long term vision to transform the community.”

The grant will enable Millhill to help focus on top organizational strategic goals to improve efficient and effective operations through technology, invest in staff and board development and to invest in marketing and development to help sustain fiscal growth.

Millhill programs serve to stabilize and strengthen Trenton’s most disadvantaged families. The most significant growth over the past few years has been the incredible growth of Millhill’s Counseling/Behavioral Health programming. A new counseling center at 802 Prospect Street in Trenton will open this summer and will serve 200 more children and their families each week.

The Spring 2015 Greater Mercer Grants are made possible by the collective generosity of several of the Community Foundation donor funds given by people who care about the region, its long-term well-being, and the nonprofits who work hard on behalf of its residents.

The Princeton Area Community Foundation promotes philanthropy to advance the well-being of our communities. The Community Foundation provides charitable giving expertise to individuals, nonprofits and corporations, and each year invests millions of dollars into the community through grants and scholarships.
