Presidential Letter

Dear friends and neighbors: August 2018

On behalf of the New Providence Education Foundation, thank you for partnering with us to make this our most successful fundraising year to date! Due to your generosity, we were able to award 35 teacher-initiated grants, totaling $89,280, that directly benefit the students in the New Providence school district – this is our largest grant check ever issued! Since its inception in 2004, the NPEF has awarded over $847,000 in grants to our schools.

As a non-profit organization, our success is dependent on the hard work of our
volunteers and the generous financial support from organizations, businesses, and
individuals in our community.

The NPEF plays a critical role in funding and enhancing the educational experience of
our students by supporting educational programs that would otherwise not be funded
through traditional sources. We strive to close the gap between budgetary challenges
and the needs of our students in an increasingly competitive world. Our hope is to bring
the entire community together to build on this important and impactful endeavor.

We remain committed to helping the New Providence School District bring academic
excellence to every classroom. The NPEF grants awarded during the 2017-2018 school
year are listed on our website and were made possible largely due to your generous
support.

Please consider making a meaningful investment to support the efforts of the NPEF
through a tax-deductible donation, right from the donation button on the home page of
our website. Your gift will help us continue to provide a rewarding educational
experience in our schools for many years to come.

We are excited to host our 1st annual Dueling Pianos fundraiser on October 13, 2018. A
night full of music, laughter and community spirit – all to benefit our students. We hope
to generate the largest attendance of any of our past fundraisers to help continue to
support our schools! Please save the date. Visit our website at NPEDFoundation.org for
more details on all our events.

With Warmest Regards,

Eugene A. Castagna
President, New Providence Education Foundation
