How You Can Help

You can contribute to The Montclair Foundation in a number of different ways!

Our Foundation grants program reviews and awards money twice annually to a wide variety of local nonprofits that make a big impact on small budgeted organizations in the arts, family services and underserved communities in Montclair. These grants are funded through donations, grants, stocks and securities, IRAs, legacy/ planned gifts as well as gifts of tangible property such as art.

The Montclair Foundation owns and maintains the Van Vleck House & Gardens property. We do not receive financial support from the township of Montclair. Among the sources of funding used to maintain The Van Vleck House and Gardens is our Green Acres Fund, which also accepts donations, grants, gifts, etc.

Here are your opportunities to support the community:

  • Direct Donation
  • Corporate Match
  • IRA Distribution
  • Bequests

These opportunities provide for the peace and tranquility of this extraordinary property and furnish the non-profit community with the ability to thrive.

Become a Friend of Van Vleck! Your membership is a steady source of support at all levels. Free admission to select Van Vleck classes and events such as our Saturday Garden Explorers program for children and special invites to Friends Day celebrations and much more …


Any donation you give will help improve our community and build capacity – making an impact in the world.
