The Maureen E Nolan Foundation is a not for profit organization dedicated to ensuring the continuation of Catholic Education. The Foundation is the project of long time New York Radio Personality Joe Nolan and his family. The continuing rise of property taxes in the State of New Jersey has made the choice of a Catholic education unavailable for some children solely due to financial reasons. This has been a primary cause of the reduced enrollment and school closures Catholic Schools have faced over the past decade.
The foundation has been named after and in honor of Joe Nolan's Mother, Maureen Nolan. Not only did she and Joe's Father provide him the benefit of a Catholic Education all of his school years right through college, but she herself was a Catholic school teacher for 18 years at Holy Trinity School in his hometown of Westfield, before her retirement. All foundation officers and members are 100% volunteer. This allows us to keep our operating overhead extremely low allowing over 95% of our donations to used directly for our exempt purpose.
The goal of our Foundation is to provide financial assistance, through scholarships, to the children of families who want a traditional Catholic School education. Scholarships are planned for both Catholic grammar school children looking to attend Catholic High School as well as Catholic High School Students looking to attend college.
With your help we can make this plan a reality.
