Amber PizzoMission Statement
Working in conjunction with service agencies, faith-based organizations and the NJ-DOC, the Foundation funds educational programs in an effort to reduce the incidence of alcohol related fatalities in Union County and throughout the State. The Foundation also provides annual scholarships to high school graduates who are planning to major in early childhood education.

History
The Amber Pizzo Memorial Foundation serves to honor the memory of a young teacher who died after being struck by an automobile driven by a drunk driver.   Amber loved young people and she was a committed advocate for the educational needs of our youth. Now the Foundation seeks to continue the work Amber began but was unable to finish after her life was suddenly and tragically ended.  Our mission is to provide community resources and programs that foster responsible decisions regarding alcohol and the dangers of underage drinking.


Donations to The Amber Pizzo Memorial Foundation help support:

  • high visibility law enforcement to help deter drunk drivers through proven solutions like sobriety checkpoints
  • prevention of underage drinking and victim support efforts
  • student scholarships

Teen alcohol use kills about 6,000 people each year...more than all illegal drugs combined.  The financial and emotional cost associated with impaired driving fatalities is staggering.  Yet it is entirely avoidable. Educating students and parents about the importance of making responsible decisions regarding alcoholic beverages and the dangers of underage drinking does make a difference.  Your support will help us make a difference.  

You can help by becoming a sponsor of the Foundation. Together we can make this a safer, healthier and better place for all.
