The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey on Wednesday announced it had awarded more than $1 million in grants to 20 nonprofit organizations around the state.
Most of the money, $550,000, came in the form of a three-year grant to the George Street Playhouse, in New Brunswick. That money will fund an expansion of the statewide school tour of “Austin the Unstoppable,” a musical that addresses diabetes and obesity.
Another $250,000 went to the Trust for Public Land, in Morristown, to fund Phase 2 of the seven-acre Newark Riverfront Park.
Other grants ranted in size from $10,000 to $35,000.
“The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey is proud to continue our tradition of supporting community-based organizations that are working to improve public health and enhance the quality of life in the Garden State,” Robert A. Marino, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey chairman & CEO and Foundation board chairman, said in a statement.
