Thank You To Our Donors

Board of Trustees’ Day of Giving Match Challenge

During Newark Academy’s eighth annual Day of Giving on March 3, 2021, the Board of Trustees challenged the NA community with a match pledge. The Board of Trustees pledged to match every $1 up to $150,000 donated to the Annual Fund, with those matching dollars going towards the school’s COVID-19 mitigation and relief efforts. The matched dollars also aided families financially affected by the pandemic. The Board of Trustees generously went above and beyond their pledge, matching a total of $169,350, which raised the Day of Giving donation total to $411,912.70 for the Newark Academy Annual Fund.
