Winner's Circle Society

Transformational Grant Fund

This annual grant opportunity is funded through the collective donations and vision of the MPCF Winners Circle Society members.   One grant is allocated each year.   Inspired by Monmouth Park Charity Fund’s 75 year legacy of raising and distributing critically need funds to local charities, the Winners Circle Society are individuals dedicated to the health and well-being of our community, and to the mission of Monmouth Park Charity Fund.  Members, through the collective power of combined donations, influence creative and transformational funding pathways to meet the changing needs of Monmouth County Residents.  Together we transform lives.

Members make an annual donation of $500 or more designated to the Winners Circle Society. Donations raised through this Society are split into two revenue streams. Half of the funds raised will go to MPCF sustaining funds and the other half is placed into the WCS Transformational Grant Fund. Members are invited to participate in determining how the grant funds are distributed.  To become a member , or if you are an agency wishing to apply for this grant, pease contact Debi Heptig, Director of Operations at (732) 571-5321 or email
