Who Are We?

The Maureen E. Nolan Foundation is the project of long-time New York Radio Personality Joe Nolan and his family. The Foundation is named after Joe’s mom, who was a Catholic school teacher at Holy Trinity School in Westfield, New Jersey, for 18 years until her death in 1982. The goal of the Foundation is to provide tuition assistance to graduates of New Jersey Catholic High Schools to attend an accredited, four-year institution of higher learning. In addition, the Foundation will also assist a graduate of Holy Trinity School in Westfield to attend a Catholic High School of their choice.  


Fundraising events include Joe Nolan’s Second Annual Half a Golf Outing, which will take place at Hyatt Hill Golf Club in Clark on October 20, 2022. More details on our events page. Full details will be posted in the Spring. Again, this year, Joe Nolan’s 5th Annual First Day of Summer will be held on May 27, 2022 at the Crabs Claw Inn in Lavallette.

“My mom would love that her son and grandchildren are trying to help the kids she loved so much, and helping to keep the tradition of Catholic education alive.” – Joe Nolan
