The Nicholson Foundation, a family foundation based in Newark, New Jersey, made its first grants in 2002 and its final awards in 2021. It closed on December 31, 2021. Over the course of two decades, the Foundation’s mission stayed constant: To improve the health and well-being of vulnerable populations in New Jersey. Vulnerable populations are those who face challenges in reaching their goals because of systemic inequities that place barriers in the way of obtaining the essentials of life-nutritious food, adequate housing and transportation, quality education, sufficient and appropriate healthcare, and the assurance of safety.
