About the Foundation

In 1984, a group of community leaders recognized a need for an endowment fund for Newark Catholic High School. The Newark Catholic High School Foundation was established to ensure the future of Catholic secondary education in our area. A capital campaign raised over $500,000 in 1985, and over $400,000 was raised in 1989. With annual giving campaigns and the generosity of the community, the Foundation has accumulated cash and pledges of over two million dollars. Because of this generosity, The Newark Catholic High School Foundation has provided just over two million dollars to Newark Catholic since inception.

It is the Foundation’s hope that, with the continued generosity of the alumni, parents, and friends of the community, we can substantially increase cash and pledges and therefore increase our annual gift to Newark Catholic High School.

Goals Of The Foundation
  • To invest prudently and only distribute investment income in order to maintain the long term stability of Newark Catholic High School.
  • To keep in mind the need to make tuition more affordable for every student who wishes to attend Newark Catholic.
  • To provide grants to the Newark Catholic High Schools operating budget.
  • To actively involve members of the community either Catholic or non-Catholic, to ensure that an alternative source of education is always available to those who want it.

Whether you are a graduate of Newark Catholic High School, St. Francis de Sales High School, a parent, or a friend of Newark Catholic, we hope we can count on YOU to make your donation to the NCHS Foundation today.
