Leonia Community Chest proudly celebrates its 75th year!

Support our 2019-2020 Fund Drive

Community Chest initiated its 2019-20 fund drive with a letter to each resident seeking donations for 19 local organizations who provide services to those in need: the young, elderly, needy, hungry and the emotionally or physically ill. The Community Chest also supports community-building activities such as those provided by arts organizations. 

The Community Chest relies on its residents to support its annual campaign. Modest donations will help us support valuable, community-based organizations. Last year, the Community Chest was pleased to collect nearly $25,000 in INDIVIDUAL donations.  

PLEASE HELP US EXCEED last year's FUNDRAISING TOTAL. To donate by credit card, please visit our Donate Page. Or send your donation to P.O. Box 68. The Community Chest is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Contributions to it are tax deductible. 

We hope you will support our annual fundraiser at Dante's Place, on Tuesday, October 22. For every dollar you spend on its delicious food, Dante's has generously offered to donate 20% to the Community Chest. Please see coupon below.

Cole Kutner receives Community Service award from Leonia Community Chest


Cole Kutner, Awardee and Nike Bach, President, Leonia Community Chest

The Leonia Community Chest was pleased to award its Community Service scholarship to Leonia High School senior Cole Kutner.  This is the 2nd year the Community Chest has presented this award to a high school graduate for activities that help people. Cole served as an American Youth Soccer referee for seven years, giving hours to officiating indoor and outdoor soccer games. He also volunteered at St. John's Roman Catholic church's food pantry. Cole says that "volunteering never felt like an annoying task". Cole will be attending Montclair State College in September. The Community Chest offers its best wishes to Cole in his future endeavors and hopes that volunteering remains a part of his life.
