The mission of New Jersey Makers Day A NJ Nonprofit Corporation, a 501(c)3 organization and registered New Jersey Charity, is to inspire and activate libraries to showcase and highlight STEM and maker culture, enhancing life-long learning.

As a component of this initiative, we are excited to announce the availability of New Jersey Makers Day grants for participating New Jersey Makers Day organizations.

Applicants are encouraged to apply for funds for any registered New Jersey Makers Day site. Awarded funds can be utilized for materials, speakers/trainers or professional development.

Proposals that focus on community partnerships and increased capacity for future programming, as well as those that increase the geographic and diversity of New Jersey Makers Day sites, will receive priority. We encourage applicants to be creative and keep in mind the mission of New Jersey Makers Day.
