Eva's Village, a Comprehensive New Jersey Anti-Poverty charity, Seeks Additional Funding to Meet the Increasing Need Along with a Decline in Donations
Date:5/27/2009

Kitchen in Paterson, NJ">soup kitchen in Paterson, NJ. There are the chronic New Jersey homeless, but also veterans, the addicted, mentally ill, elderly, poor, and increasingly, New Jersey's working poor.

Sister Gloria Perez, Executive Director of Eva's Village, defines New Jersey's working poor as "…those who work at one or even multiple minimum wage or sub-minimum wage jobs, but still don't make enough to support themselves or their families." She is careful to point out that the working poor resist government aid or charity, but as jobs become scarce, they have no choice. Sister Gloria says, "We have New Jersey fathers and mothers coming to eat their one meal per day here, so they can give their share at home to the family."

While Eva's Village has been aggressively seeking donations, it has experienced a decline in overall giving for its anti-poverty programs. More than half of the revenue that supports the Eva's Village mission to "feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, treat the addicted and provide free medical and dental care to the poor," comes from donations from corporate, private foundations, individuals and civic groups.

A new research advisory from Foundation Center shows foundation giving is expected to decrease in 2009. The Foundation Center reported that 62 percent of the 430 foundations surveyed expect to reduce their grant making this year. In fact, Eva's Village has received notification from numerous foundations noting that they are not distributing funds at this time because they are redirecting the interests of their foundation or because funds have already been allocated early in the calendar year.
