Emergency Assistance Grants
In time of local emergencies, Monmouth Park Charity Fund will mobilize to determine the greatest needs in our community and provide impactful grants to those charities. Such grants were provided in response to the 9/11 Terrorist Attack, Superstorm Sandy and most recently COVID-19.
