Essex Catholic High School Scholarship Fund
The ECHS Scholarship Fund was created to provide financial support to those young students who wish to continue their education at a catholic high school and who have a father and/or grandfather who attended Essex Catholic High School.
Why donate to a Scholarship Fund for a school that has been closed for 10 years?
The Bishop Francis Essex Catholic High School Alumni Association supported and subsidized the school's expenses during our school's glorious existence. After the school closed, we worked hard to celebrate our great past and to keep those memories alive. By giving to the Scholarship Fund, we support the ever-changing need of today's student to get a quality catholic education.
Is a donation tax-deductible?
The Bishop Francis Essex Catholic High School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations which support catholic education are tax deductible. Ever dollar we collect goes to establishing funds in support of the children of our Alumni in their quest to receive a quality catholic education.
Where can I sent my donation?

Can I make a donation via phone call?

Is there other ways of giving?
Yes, many alumni donate their time in support of Christ the King High School, currently located in Newark, NJ at the old Our lady of Good Counsel High School.

Where Are They Now?
As we all remember, the friendships we built at Essex Catholic provided a sense of brotherhood for many of us. Outside of school, we all had our childhood friends; but, these Essex friendship will never be forgotten. For all of us, life took us in different directions and sometimes away from our original paths (even away from New Jersey). In this new section: Where Are They Now? we hope to provide a glimpse of where many of our brothers went and what they are doing with their lives after Essex Catholic.
Hope you enjoy the new section and pleae let us know if there are any of our Brothers who you wish to recognize. Please do not hesitate to write a note in the Contact Us section of this website.
