The National Organization for Women of New Jersey ("NOWNJ Foundation") is a 501(c) (3) organization devoted to furthering women's rights through education and litigation. The NOWNJ Foundation is affiliated with the New Jersey State Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOWNJ) a state-wide women's advocacy organization consisting of 10,000 members and allies and 14 chapters.

The NOWNJ Foundation is dedicated to the achievement of full participation in society by women and girls.  We are a charitable, tax-deductible, foundation, focused in New Jersey, which creates projects and programs and provides grants to organization and individuals committed to ending discrimination against women and girls.  We have funded a number of educational projects that focus on the following:

Empowering Women Everyday
Philanthropic and public funding for women's and girls' programs is often restricted, if available at all. The NOWNJ Foundation has launched voter registration programs, divorce seminars, financial planning and debt management workshops, and is currently working on developing a hot-line that will serve as an information clearing house for women in crisis to find help wither with custody issues, divorce, domestic violence, sexual assault, psychiatric services and much more.

Honoring a Feminist Herstory
Many of the great feats and accomplishments by women to our society have been overlooked, underestimated, or under-publicized.  The NOWNJ Foundation sponsors the Women Making History  Annual Awards, a ceremony that honors New Jersey women leaders who have shown uncommon courage and leadership in securing the rights of women and their equal participation in society.

Fostering a Feminist Future
The NOWNJ Foundation is dedicated to recruiting and training the next generation of feminist leaders.  The Foundation sponsors a feminist intern program that scouts for young feminist students and leaders and places them in meaningful, hands-on programs in the organization learning press, field work, and policy research.  The Foundation also travels to campuses and provides assistance in developing leadership seminars, organizational leadership, recruiting and retaining volunteers and building coalitions.

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.

Logging in

To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Template, site settings, and modules

The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu.

The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.

You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link.

More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.
