Junior Achievement Centennial Campaign

Junior Achievement Centennial Campaign

Ensuring the Future of New Jersey through JA

We are proud to celebrate 100 years as a Mission and look forward to our next 100 years of empowering young people for success. Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) is committed to remaining on the cutting-edge of youth education with a steadfast belief that career readiness is the key link to the future success of our students and our state's economy. Thus, we are embarking on a Centennial Campaign to raise $1,000,000 to develop a Career Pathways Center (CPC), ensuring the sustainability of JA's career readiness programs.

Centennial Tree of Giving  100 Leaves for 100 Years 

JANJ has launched a a multi-faceted Centennial Campaign, including a capital project to build the JA Career Pathways Center, two special events—Taste of the Decades and New Jersey Business Hall of Fame, and a Centennial Tree of Giving for individual contributors. 

Designed and fabricated by JA students, the Centennial Tree of Giving seeks to grow our individual investors, further diversifying JA’s fundraising and ensuring our sustainability for the next 100 years.

Little Seeds Make Mighty Trees... Make A Legacy Gift

Make a one-time donation or gift made through monthly installments which will be represented in perpetuity at the JA Education Center with corresponding leaf sizes.

Donation Levels:

  • $2,500 gives the gift of JA to 80 students (one-time contribution) 

  • $5,000 gives the gift of JA to 160 students (one-time contribution)

Room full of kids

Junior Achievement Digital Campaign

With statewide school district closures, New Jersey's educational landscape has shifted significantly to implementing remote learning.

In response to the growing needs as a result of COVID-19, JANJ has created a campaign to support our children, families, schools, and educators in this new educational landscape, and provide meaningful opportunities for our volunteers and corporate partners to give back.
