Dan Fatton, Outreach and Development Director (609) 393-0008, ext. 105
The Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation has donated $10,000 to support New Jersey Future’s work for sustainable and healthy land use.
In 2011, New Jersey Future will refine a sustainable land-use toolkit and test it in municipalities with varied socio-economic conditions. Ultimately, this work will develop new educational programs that elevate the best practices in green design, housing provisions, transportation policy and more.
New Jersey Future Outreach & Development Director Dan Fatton thanked the Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation for its generous contribution. “This partnership supports our mutual vision for a healthy environment, vital communities and economic opportunity for all citizens of our state by promoting both sustainable growth and environmental preservation,” Fatton said.
“Wells Fargo is proud to support New Jersey Future because its programs enhance the quality of life of the state’s residents through the building of stronger communities,” said Brenda Ross-Dulan, Wells Fargo’s Southern New Jersey regional president. “We look forward to working with them to fulfill their mission of revitalizing neighborhoods, making housing more affordable and preserving our natural resources.”
New Jersey Future was established in 1987 by a group of civic, environmental and business leaders to support the creation and implementation of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, New Jersey Future employs research, analysis and advocacy to drive policies and build coalitions that help revitalize cities and towns, protect natural lands and farm fields, provide transportation and housing choices, generate new jobs and improve opportunities for the impoverished.
