Paterson Nonprofits coming together to make a BIG difference.


Paterson, a city of 150,000 located in the heart of northern New Jersey, is a proud community. Founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1792 as a manufacturing hub, the city is redefining itself for the 21st century. 

With more than 29% of residents living in poverty, Paterson is home to many individuals in need. However, it is also home to a vibrant nonprofit community that creates a safety net to help our neighbors who are most at risk. For the fourth year in a row, these nonprofits are coming together on #GivingTuesday to create a profound impact for those we serve.

Your #GivingTuesday gift will go twice as far, thanks to a generous match from M&T Bank and an anonymous partner! These two donors have committed up to $25,000 to match each organization’s fundraising totals on Tuesday, November 27.
