Ways To Give

Capital Campaign

Began in 2020, Newman embarked on a capital campaign in order to fill the gap of funding
necessary to build on new Center on Thatcher Rd. The initial funding was made in the purchase
by the University of Massachusetts Amherst for the amount of $12.5 M. The campaign’s goal of
$2M provided the additional money necessary to complete the construction of the new Center
and to provide additional funding to be included in the existing Endowment Fund for support of
the mission and ministry of Newman in years to come.
The campaign will officially end in December of 2023 enabling additional donors to make

Endowment Fund

This endowment fund was begun by the FUTURE OF HOPE CAMPAIGN, the capital campaign
conducted by the Diocese of Springfield in 2020. This endowment fund has incurred in
contributions a total of $1.6M to date and produces for Newman’s ministry a return of 4% in
interest annually.
Contributions to the fund may be made through the Center’s Development Office.

Fr. Quigley Scholarship Fund

This fund was started by a donor of Newman who worked closely with its then Associate
Director, Fr. Joseph Quigley. “Quig” as he was affectionately known by students and
community members of that era, was a man of devotion and integrity both to the Center and
those it served. Known for his three-point sermons and complete devotion to the students of the
University Fr. Quig was known for taking money from his own pockets. To keep this kind and
compassionate legacy of Fr. Quigley alive, the Fr. Quigley Scholarship Fund gives to our students
that little bit of help that sometimes makes all the difference in their day.
Donations to the Fund may be made either online or by calling the Development Office.


Newman is a recognized 501 (c) 3 and relies greatly on individual donations. Each year
Newman conducts 3 appeal campaigns to provide unrestricted funding for our ministries here at
Newman – the Fall Appeal, our Society Appeal which is our appeal to our major donors and our
Spring/Summer Appeal.
Donations may be made on line or by calling the Development Office.

Memorial Donation

Newman is appreciative of any donations made but those made in the memory of a loved one is
especially heartening. Recognizing a loved one’s life or a significant milestone is a tribute to the
mission of Newma
n and its impact.
Call the Newman’s Development Office to make arrangements for a memorial or honorarium
