21 Plus
21 Plus - Ocean County

Mission Statement

The Foundation’s mission is to generate financial support to enhance the programs and vision of 21 Plus, Inc. while balancing those needs with the long‑term preservation of capital for the future.

What the 21 Plus Foundation has been up to:

In 2019 the Foundation was able to grant support to 21 Plus for flooring and living room furniture in several group homes, a new flat screen TV in one home, plus other home improvements. The Foundation was pleased to help 21 Plus show appreciation to their dedicated employees at a beautiful appreciation luncheon in the fall with lots of awards, delicious food, and prizes.

The Foundation raised funds through letter appeals, bequests, events and grants. The highlight of the year was an amazing 40th anniversary celebration of 21 Plus, Inc. with a tribute to the Founders and the O’Grady family.  Additional revenue was generated from service groups and other donations.

In 2020 the Foundation will be working closely with 21 Plus to provide Foundation support for critical technology and marketing needs as noted in their strategic plan. In addition, in 2020 the Foundation has provided support for additional 21 Plus needs due to COVID-19. You can help by donating whatever you can afford, volunteering to help with an event, and including the Foundation in your will.
