The New Jersey Boys State Foundation (NJBSF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organization working in partnership with the American Legion Department of New Jersey for the overall betterment of the American Legion Jersey Boys State program.

Made up primarily of members of the ALJBS staff, the NJBSF seeks to enhance the overall statesman educational experience while also helping to offset the rising costs of running the ALJBS program.

The NJBSF seeks to accomplish these goals through several different efforts, such as:

  • Legacy Scholarships, each of which covers the annual costs of a single statesman in perpetuity
  • Special Events, such as the annual Family Day picnic and the ALJBS College & Career Fair
  • Corporate and Individual donations
  • Technology contributions like the Chromebooks used by each statesman
