Annual Nonprofit Council Reception
Now that #HudsonGives has been successfully established as an annual fundraising campaign to support the economic development of Hudson County nonprofits, what's next? How can the nonprofit sector in Hudson County engage even more intentionally to drive further collaboration?
We'll be discussing these questions and more at a special Nonprofit Council Reception, featuring Kevin Callaghan, Newark Philanthropic Liaison for the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers. Kevin will share his experiences in leveraging private and public assets to support critical causes in Newark and to engage the philanthropic community more intentionally.
Please join us for networking, conversation, food & drink. All nonprofit leaders and staff are welcome to attend and anyone else interested in learning more about the sector!
About Kevin Callaghan
The Office of the Newark Philanthropic Liaison is an innovative collaboration between the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers and the City of Newark. Kevin Callaghan began serving as the Newark Philanthropic Liaison on September 1, 2016.
In the role of Newark Philanthropic Liaison, a cabinet-level position, Kevin works directly with the Mayor and his senior cabinet to leverage private and government assets to support the Mayor’s agenda in areas such as public safety, summer youth employment, workforce development, economic development, health and wellness, education and literacy, immigration, and neighborhood and place-based initiatives. The Office of the Newark Philanthropic Liaison also convenes and connects Newark and regional funding partners, Newark community-based organizations, and other key stakeholders by providing thought leadership, facilitating content and affinity groups, and raising awareness about critical issues facing the City of Newark.
Immediately prior to serving as the Newark Philanthropic Liaison, Callaghan was Project Lead on the City’s 2016 Summer Youth Employment Program where he worked to implement system and program enhancements to one of the Mayor’s signature programs. Before this short-term appointment, he served for nearly five years as the Program Officer at the Foundation for Newark’s Future (FNF), the local arm of national philanthropic funding donated to the City of Newark to improve education opportunities for youth. Prior to joining the Foundation for Newark’s Future, Kevin worked for the federal government as a Special Assistant at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation in Washington D.C. and was a classroom teacher of middle school Social Studies in Philadelphia.
Callaghan holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and History from St. Peter’s University in Jersey City and a Master’s Degree in Urban Education from the University of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in New Jersey, Kevin is a proud resident of Newark.
