Dear Friends,

We believe that the work we do today helps carry on the traditions of excellence tomorrow. Your gift to The Newark Catholic High School Foundation is an investment in the young people and the future of our community. Because of our wonderful supporters, The Foundation was able to provide Newark Catholic the $125,000 requested support to the general operating budget in 2019 along with an additional $50,000 to the Inspire (Auditorium) Campaign. This money benefits all of the students and faculty. Your loyal support has enabled the Foundation to provide over $2,100,000 to Newark Catholic since the Foundation’s inception in 1984.

You can make a difference by making a gift to The Newark Catholic High School Foundation today at or mail it in the envelope enclosed. You may also wish to make your gift in memory of a deceased classmate, relative, or friend. All gifts to the Foundation are welcome and no gift is too small. This past year we received gifts from 89 first time donors and received additional gifts from 223 of our existing donors.

Also, if you have a regular Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and you are age 70 ½ or older, you are eligible to use your IRA to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to qualified charities of your choice. By making an eligible QCD from your regular IRA you can avoid Federal and State taxes on the QCD. This is more tax-efficient than using cash to make a charitable contribution. If you are interested in learning more about a gift to The Newark Catholic High School Foundation with a QCD, please call the Foundation office at 740-344-5671, or consult your tax advisor.

As always, thank you for your continued support of The Newark Catholic High School Foundation.
