In 1999, the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of New Jersey followed our national organization's footsteps and adopted Make-A-Wish New Jersey as the association's official charity.
Since then, through volunteer efforts at events such as the Annual Trusted Choice Charity Golf Outing, sponsorship of the Walk for Wishes events, and donations from members, IIABNJ has proudly raised over $600,000 for this outstanding foundation.
In 2015, IIABNJ was able to donation of $27,000 to Make-A-Wish New Jersey.
IIABNJ's 2014 donations funded the following wishes:
