The first $25,000 of gifts to the fund will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to a generous anonymous donor!

This year marks 30 years since the establishment of Interfaith Neighbors, Inc. During that time, Interfaith Neighbors has been steered by Joseph Marmora, a man of faith and highest personal character. Under his leadership, Interfaith Neighbors has earned a reputation as a strong, fiscally responsible, mission-driven organization that has helped thousands of individuals and families throughout Monmouth County.

As Joe prepares to retire this summer, Interfaith Neighbors will honor his service at our 30th Anniversary Gala. As a tribute to his decades of dedication to his "neighbors," the Board of Trustees at Interfaith Neighbors is establishing the "Joseph J. Marmora Rental & Mortgage Assistance Endowed Fund." This program at Interfaith Neighbors continues to be Joe's passion, and he plans to continue as an adviser to the program after his retirement.

Leading up to the Gala, we are quietly inviting some of Joe's close friends, family and long-time Interfaith Neighbors supporters to help us in seeding this fund. We will surprise Joe with the news of the fund at the Gala and at that point invite others to join in contributing to the Fund.

A generous, anonymous donor has come forward and offered a dollar for dollar match for the first $25,000 of all gifts to the fund during this quiet phase. This means your gift will be doubled during this time! These funds will be held in perpetuity in the endowment along with future contributions to the fund, and the interest and income generated by the Fund will be distributed to families in need in the form of rental & mortgage assistance for years to come.

As we launch the Fund, gifts of any size are gratefully accepted.

Joe will be notified of all participating at the Gala on June 14th.
