Private Support Matters

Did you know that the Holy Ghost Fund provides unrestricted support that helps bridge the funding gap for needs that tuition alone does not provide? It’s a fund that supports HGP’s annual commitment to underwrite and enhance all aspects of our school.

Unrestricted support allows HGP to fill the gaps between academic programs, faculty professional development opportunities, and need-based scholarship funding, just to name a few.

Your gift WILL help build a future of promise found within each student. For more information and to make your gift today, visit or contact Alexis Gettings, Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement at Holy Ghost Prep via e-mail ( or phone (215-639-2102, ext. 204).

Please join us on Wednesday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Corner Bakery at 3 West Rd, Newtown, PA 18940. We need Committee Chairs and volunteers to help plan the 50th anniversary celebration of the Mothers' Guild.
