Legislation that will create a fund to help the Boys and Girls Clubs in New Jersey via a voluntary contribution on state corporate and personal income tax returns was signed into law Wednesday.
The bill, A3267, establishes the “Boys and Girls Club in New Jersey Fund.” Taxpayers will have the option to contribute to this new fund through a check-off box on New Jersey’s corporate and personal income tax returns each year.
The measure was sponsored by Assembly members Annette Quijano, Ruben J. Ramos, Jr., and Upendra J. Chivukula.
“The Boys and Girls Clubs provide a safe, educational environment for disadvantaged youth in the otherwise unsupervised hours before and after school,” Quijano said in a release. “This is a simple way to boost support for their efforts.”
