Presidents Letter

Dear friends and neighbors:

I hope that this message finds you and your families happy and healthy. 

The NPEF was formed in 2004 with the simple goal of creating a partnership between the New Providence School District and our community at large.  This is done through fundraising events, sponsorship, and individual donation.  In turn, we award these funds back to our schools through teacher initiated grants that both explore new learning opportunities and enhance existing programs, and two scholarships for ‘unsung heroes’ of the senior class.  To date, we have awarded more than $1 Million back to our schools, and this amount continues to grow,  

On behalf of the NPEF, I would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support of our organization.  Because of your generosity, we were able to award $68,893 in teacher initiated grants for the 2021-22 school year.  

Enclosed is a full description of our 2021-22 grants.  They are also on our website at

As we look to the 2022-23 school year, our students are back to ‘normal’ in the classroom, and we feel as though we are back to ‘normal’ with our calendar of events.  To date we have hosted our annual Kindergarten Mixer and our Second Annual Fall Festival at Untied.  Both were a huge success and we plan to bring them back next year.  Later this month the Harlem Wizards will be back in NP, and looking down the road to January, we will be hosting Touchdown for Education.  We hope to see everyone at these events, and while they are a lot of fun and raise money for the NPEF, they only get us part of the way there.  We have set a goal to raise $100,000 that would be awarded to our schools, but we can’t do that without your help.  Your contribution of any size will help us to achieve this goal as we work to keep NP as one of the top school districts in the state.
