Trenton, N.J. (Nov. 27, 2015) – Year-end giving to Trenton Children's Chorus just got simpler with the debut of this year's Jersey Give Back Guide, an online giving tool designed to take the guesswork out of year-end giving.
Using the Jersey Give Back Guide's online Generosity Generator, individuals can choose from four categories — Community, Arts, Environment and Newark — to learn about this year's featured nonprofits, find one or more that match their passions, and quickly and easily support them. All donations go directly to the organizations.
Donations made to Trenton Children's Chorus provide exceptional musical, academic, personal and social opportunities for 140 children and teens. The Chorus has performed at the White House, including for President and Mrs. Obama, United Nations, National Cathedral, Princeton University, the inauguration of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and for corporate, community, church and private events in the greater Trenton area. In a city where nearly 50% of students drop out of school, 100% of TCC graduates go on to college.
"Music teaches kids how to solve problems and make judgments," says Constance Hurtt, director of the Training Choir for children in fourth and fifth grades. "The discipline they need to be in the choir positively impacts their behavior. Music helps prepare them for college, for success, for life."
The Jersey Give Back Guide is an annual, seasonal project of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation produced in partnership with the Victoria Foundation. The featured nonprofits were chosen based on several criteria, including how innovative, collaborative, and financially healthy they are as organizations, as well as how deeply and effectively they engage their communities. All have excellent reputations for their work and reflect the programmatic and geographic diversity of the nonprofit sector in New Jersey.
This is the third year of the Jersey Give Back Guide, which remains open through January. Since it launched in 2013, more than $100,000 has been raised for New Jersey nonprofits. This year, their goal is to raise $100,000 and spread generosity and the good feeling you get when you give to as many people as possible.

TCC welcomes all children who love to sing, and never denies a child's participation because of limited resources. For more information about TCC, including how to join, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org/www.trentonchildrenschorus.org/609-278-0822.
