The Gertrude Butts Fund, a non-profit corporation organized in 1929, provides “seed money” for programs within the diocese which are educationally driven and benefit youngsters with diocesan affiliations.
The Gertrude Butts Fund was established to carry out provisions of the will of George Butts in memory of his daughter Gertrude who died at the age of 14. Income from the fund is used to provide collegiate or vocational scholarship assistance to youth in need in the Diocese of Newark.
Please note: These should be NEW programs, not those previously funded by the Butts Fund.
If you feel your agency and/or organization meets this criteria, please send an email request with budget, and detailed specifics of the program immediately to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also mail all pertinent information to:
