Verizon Foundation Works to Improve Lives Throughout New Jersey

Verizon Foundation Works to Improve Lives Throughout New Jersey


The Verizon Foundation is proud to be a key piece of New Jersey’s fabric. Every year, we are working to improve lives across the state in such important areas as education, diversity, energy management and health care.

Our focus is to help accelerate social change wherever we can by using the company’s innovative technology to help solve pressing problems.

Since 2000, the Verizon Foundation has invested more than half a billion dollars to improve the communities where Verizon employees work and live across the country and internationally.

In the past two years, the Foundation has committed nearly $6 million in New Jersey. Our support has helped students find new ways to engage with technology and empower teachers and students in the classroom, while sparking a passion for innovation that we hope encourages a lifetime of learning and succeeding in New Jersey. We have also used technology-enabled chronic disease management programs to improve communication between patients and providers and to empower improved patient self-management for better long-term outcomes for our citizens.
