The New Jersey Boys State Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organization working in partnership with the American Legion Department of New Jersey to help off-set the rising costs of the American Legion Jersey Boys State program. The Foundation seeks to accomplish this goal through Legacy Scholarships, Corporate and Individual donations, and Special Events in addition to enhancing the ALJBS program each year through our talented Technology committee.
The Foundation was independently formed by members of the volunteer staff of
back in 1999 for the betterment of the program. We seek to continuously improve the top-quality
educational experience that ALJBS currently provides for its participants. By continuing to build an
endowment for the benefit of the Jersey Boys State program, we seek to enhance the program and its
curriculum via technology and keynote speakers, offer scholarships, and ensure the financial stability
of Jersey Boys State for many years to come. In addition to monetary donations, the Foundation accepts
in-kind donations of used computer equipment, particularly laptops and tablets purchased in the last 3-5 years.
