Dear Neighbor,:

Since its inception in 2000, your Rumson Endowment Fund, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit New Jersey Corporation, has pursued its mission of funding improvements to our quality of life each year here in the Borough of Rumson without relying on our property tax dollars.

The purpose of this note is to ask you, again, for your financial support so that we might continue the Fund’s mission into 2015.

Notable enhancements made possible by the Endowment Fund to date include:

  • Rumson Centennial Festivities in 2007
  • The Summer Family Concert Series
  • The Annual Halloween Party and Parade
  • Our Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration at Victory Park
  • Forrestdale Athletic Field Restoration and Irrigation, and
  • The Purchase of Personal Protective Vests for our Police Officers

In 2015, with your continued support and assistance, the Rumson Endowment Fund, Inc. would like to add to this list of accomplishments and festivities for the benefit and enjoyment of all our residents.

Specifically, we would like to:

  • Initiate the First Annual Rumson Fun Day proposed for Saturday, June 6, 2015 at Victory Park. The proceeds from the day’s festivities will be used to help fund the replacement and/or refurbishment of the playground’s deteriorating equipment, and
  • Purchase and install two new, centrally controlled and appropriately designed, electronic message boards to replace the antiquated, labor-intensive signs at the corner of East River Road and Bingham Avenue and at the town’s recycling center behind Borough Hall.

If you would like to help make this plan a reality, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Rumson Endowment Fund, Inc. Frankly, no amount is too small or too large; whatever works best for you and your family would be greatly appreciated.

We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday and thank you, greatly, for your consideration and support.

The Rumson Endowment Committee
