Support Us

TAKE YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE

Choose New Jersey is supported by a prominent group of leaders from many of the State’s Fortune 500 and other top companies, privately-held ventures, labor organizations, association, and higher education institutions. These organizations, which represent 1.25 million people, or nearly one-quarter of the State’s private-sector workforce, have already chosen New Jersey because they believe in the benefits of living and working here. Their support allows us to echo their choice and commitments.

Choose New Jersey and its supporters share a common vision: to build a better future for New Jersey and its citizens by attracting and retaining businesses that will create sustainable jobs and invest in its communities.

Since our founding in 2010, we have made it our mission to spread the word that New Jersey is “highly educated, perfectly located” through marketing and business development activities. We target decision makers here at home, throughout the nation, and around the world.

Choose New Jersey has become a leader in promoting the State as a great place to establish and grow a business. We have made considerable strides in attracting jobs and investment to our communities. But as a privately-funded organization, we would not be able to continue our work without the support and contributions of our Ambassadors, Diplomats, Partners and Education Advocates.

We invite you to consider joining us in our work, sharing our vision and moving with us to create a better New Jersey.

Choose New Jersey, Inc. is a recognized 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. All or part of your contribution may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with your tax advisor.
