Dear loyal supporters of the Annual FRIENDS Gala,

With the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, we are canceling our spring events, including our Annual FRIENDS Gala, which was scheduled for May 12. For 44 years the Gala has generated funds essential to our ability to help the thousands of families who count on us each school year.

All of the Catholic Schools within the Archdiocese of New York have extended closures through Monday, April 20.

This is a difficult time for all of us, but we are more concerned about the families we serve. Many Catholic school parents earn hourly wages and are particularly vulnerable to financial insecurity. Inner-City Scholarship Fund is committed to ensuring our children receive the scholarships that we promised to them. I know you will join me in keeping them in your thoughts and prayers.

The Gala will return in 2021, but in the interim, I hope you will consider making a donation. While we can cancel the Gala, we cannot cancel on our students!

Donate Now

On behalf of all of us at Inner-City Scholarship Fund and the FRIENDS Gala Committee, I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thank you for your ongoing support. I know together we will get through this.
