NRG Gives Celebrates 3 NJ Charities

NRG’s crowdsourced charitable donations support special needs kids, cancer research, and youth career opportunities

Three deserving nonprofits making a difference in the lives of children and families in New Jersey learned the results of the latest NRG Gives crowdsourced charitable campaign on October 29, 2019. The organizations enlisted the support of the public to decide how the funds would be shared.

The three charities gathered at Lincoln Financial Field’s presidents club on Tuesday for the NRG Gives ceremony, with friends, supporters and the NRG employee who nominated the charity.

An employee nominates a charity for consideration. The three top winning charities compete in a public crowd souring vote.

For the first time since NRG Gives launched in November 2016, the donation each charity gets was determined by the percentage of total votes it received. In another first, this campaign featured exclusively New Jersey-based charities serving primarily New Jersey residents. In total, NRG Gives has now awarded more than $635,000 to support 23 regional nonprofits.

“NRG is so grateful for the tremendous work these nonprofits do to make lives better for so many people in New Jersey,” said Mike Starck, Vice President and General Manager, NRG Retail East division. “We hope, in addition to the financial support provided, being a part of NRG Gives will raise awareness so others will learn about and support them.”

Camp Fatima of New Jersey, which gives dozens of children with special needs a unique week-long camp experience

“100% of this donation will go directly to funding groundbreaking research for melanoma,” said Lauren Miller (pictured above), Executive Director, Tara Miller Melanoma Foundation. “Tara started this foundation to change the odds for melanoma patients that would come after her and with every dollar raised we are one step closer to that goal. We would like to thank NRG for the opportunity to participate in the NRG Gives program and for the generosity in supporting organizations throughout the community.”

Hopeworks Camden, which provides real-world career opportunities for youth.

NRG, a leading energy provider, is headquartered in Princeton, NJ, with its consumer energy business based in Philadelphia. NRG is committed to supporting the communities where its customers and employees live and work and the NRG Gives program is one of the ways it does that. Thanks NRG!!

NRG Gives Again – New Jersey Nonprofits Vying for $65K – You Can Determine Who Wins

NRG has revealed the New Jersey Nonprofits Vying for $65K from Crowdsourced Charitable Program. The launch took place Monday October 21, 2019 at the NRG Princeton headquarters.

-For the first time, “NRG Gives” features only New Jersey nonprofits-

Dave Schrader
Public Relations Manager
Communications welcomes the guests and explains how NRG Gives works.

“NRG Gives is one of the best parts of our work at NRG and has generated great participation and excitement in this region,” said Mike Starck, Vice-President and General Manager of NRG Retail East division. “NRG Gives provides employees the opportunity to directly impact nonprofits where they live and work and allows our customers and the public a say in where we invest in this community.”

Dan Rhodan, Azaris Melendez of Hopeworks Camden, Lauren Miller, Debbie Miller and George Miller of Tara Miller Melanoma Foundation with Mauricio Gutierrez, President and CEO of NRG, NRG Officials Mike Starck, Vice-President and General Manager of NRG Retail East division and George Miller

Hopeworks Camden, based in Camden, NJ, focuses on education, technology, and entrepreneurship, to help young people build strong futures and break the cycle of violence and poverty in Camden. Hopeworks connects youth to life-changing opportunities, first within our own social enterprises, then they put their technology skills to work for enterprising businesses within the community. The real world, on-the-job experiences they gain, raises their potential and benefits Hopeworks’ partners.

Tara Miller Melanoma Foundation, based in Longport, NJ, raises money to support the research of effective treatment methods and ultimately a cure for melanoma. Tara Miller founded the Foundation in 2014, after being diagnosed with melanoma at age 28, losing her battle at 29 years old. Since 2014, TMMF has funded more than $3.4 million to melanoma research with 100% of all money raised going directly to research.

Mike Starck, Vice-President and General Manager of NRG Retail East division , Bill Malone and Elizabeth Wolansky of Camp Fatima of NJ and Mauricio Gutierrez, President and CEO of NRG

Camp Fatima of NJ, based in Harrison, NJ, is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing no cost recreational programming to individuals with developmental disabilities from school age through adulthood. Camp Fatima is also dedicated to providing respite to caregivers by delivering safe, nurturing, and high-quality programming to the campers.

All three nonprofits took part in a vote kickoff pep rally at NRG Energy’s headquarters in Princeton, NJ. NRG Gives is NRG’s crowdsourced charitable program. For the first time since NRG Gives launched in 2016, only New Jersey-based charities serving primarily New Jersey residents, are eligible to participate. The nonprofits are nominated by NRG employees.

Now each nonprofit is vying for $65,000 in donations from NRG during a public voting period that runs from 9:00 a.m. today, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, October 27. The donation each charity receives will be determined by the percentage of total votes received. This is different than previous NRG Gives campaigns. More than ever, every vote counts.

The employees of NRG nominate the charities, then the public votes on their favorite to win.
Last year’s winner Scott Otterbein, Special Olympics Montgomery County manager and coach, tells the charities the most important way to get the word out is to use social media. They were never overly active on SM before the NRG Gives project, but became very active during and it proved helpful as someone with hundreds of followers retweeted their need.

The Blue Bell-based Special Olympics Montgomery County earned its nomination due to its importance to NRG employee Brett Guerin (who was on hand on Monday), whose brother, Michael Guerin, is a Special Olympics athlete proficient in basketball, volleyball and golf, noted Scott Otterbein, Special Olympics Montgomery County manager and coach.

The NRG Gives program, established in 2016, has donated $574,500 to 20 diverse nonprofits in the tri-state area through spring 2019. In addition, NRG supports local communities through our Choose to Give program, volunteerism, and other charitable giving. In 2018 alone, employees who are based in New Jersey and Pennsylvania spent 2,554 hours volunteering across these states.
