New Jersey Propane Education & Research Foundation (NJPERF) is a non-profit foundation, established by the New Jersey Propane Gas Association, with education, safety, and training as its prime objectives. It was formed as a result of the establishment of the National Propane Education and Research Council as the entity entitled to receive New Jersey State funds. Industry members are invited to submit their ideas to NJPGA Headquarters for potential programs related to these objectives.

Incorporated in 1999, the purposes of the Foundation are to establish and facilitate programs to enhance safety, training, research and development, and safety education in the propane gas industry for the benefit of propane consumers and the public, and for other lawful purposes.
