Presidential Letter

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

On behalf of the New Providence Education foundation, I would like to thank you for making 2015 another successful year. Due to your generosity, in the spring we were able to make awards totaling $70,348, which benefited all of the schools in the New Providence school district. We could not have achieved this without the hard work of the volunteers who donate their time to the foundation, and the generous financial support from organizations, local businesses and individuals. Our success is dependent upon this support.

The New Providence Education Foundation plays a critical role in funding the educational experience of the students within our school district. By fostering and enhancing the partnerships between our community and the school district, we are able to help support educational programs that would otherwise not be able to 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.

We are looking forward to hosting our 3rd annual NPEF 5K Run/Walk and Fun Run on October 16th, 2016. Last year’s race was a fantastic community event with a range of participants, from families, friends and sponsors to competitive runners. Check out our website at NPEDFoundation.org for more details/registration packet for this certified 5K race and come out, participate and support the kids of New Providence!

We remain committed to helping the New Providence School District bring academic excellence to each and every classroom. The NPEF grants awarded during the 2015­/2016 school year are listed in the enclosed brochure and were made possible largely due to your kind consideration. If you would like to join the NPEF in making a meaningful investment in the students and schools of New Providence this year, please consider making a tax­ deductible donation using the donate button in the header. Your gift will help us continue to provide a rewarding educational experience in our schools for many years to come.

With Warmest Regards,

Eugene A. Castagna
President, New Providence Education Foundation
