The Astle-Alpaugh Family Foundation is a private grant- making organization with a mission to improve the lives of individuals and families. Our priorities are derived from involvement in the local community of Central New Jersey.
We believe that the strength of a society can be measured by how it cares for its most vulnerable citizens – we seek to provide stability and hope for the elderly and for at-risk children and youth, as well as for persons suffering from illness, hunger, poverty, abuse, and chemical dependency.
We strive to foster community involvement in education – we fund diverse educational programs.
We place a strong priority on the improvement of our local community – we support museums, community centers, and historic preservation.
