Presidential Letter

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

On behalf of the New Providence Education Foundation, I would like to thank you for teaming up with us to make this our most successful year to date! Due to your generosity, we were able to award $89,280 in teacher initiated grants that directly benefit the students in the New Providence school district. This represents the largest grant check issued since our inception, funding 35 grants. We are dependent on and grateful for the hard work of our volunteers and the generous financial support from organizations, businesses and individuals in our community for such success.

The New Providence Education Foundation plays a critical role in funding the educational experience of our students. 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. Since its inception in 2004, the NPEF has awarded over $500,000 in grants to our schools. Our hope is to bring the entire community together to build on this important and impactful endeavor.

We are looking forward to hosting our 1st annual Dueling Pianos fundraiser on October 13, 2018. This should prove to be a night full of song, laughter and great community spirit all to benefit our students. Check out our website at NPEDFoundation.org for more details on this and future events. Please come out and participate to support our amazing schools.

We remain committed to helping the New Providence School District bring academic excellence to each and every classroom. The NPEF grants awarded during the 2017-2018 school year are listed on the website and were made possible largely due to your generous support. If you would like to join our NPEF team in making a meaningful investment in the students and schools of New Providence this year, please consider making a tax-deductible donation using the donation button. 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
