the Generations capital Campaign

"The success of The 'Generations' Capital Campaign has already impacted Seton Hall Prep in a profound way thanks to the generosity and goodness of so many Prep alumni, family and friends.  Over the past 5 years, we have been blessed to witness the construction of the state-of-the-art John J. Murphy '52 Science Center, the completion of four athletic fields and three buildings at The Kelly Athletic Complex (KAC), the renovation of 14 classrooms, and the initiative to strengthen the endowment.  These developments will ensure that The Prep can continue to innovate while remaining rooted in our earliest Catholic Traditions. We are closing in on our $25,000,000 goal to complete this mission. I believe the advancements and improvements made as a result of this campaign will be felt by generations of young men, alumni and families of our beloved school."

campaign FAQ

A. “Generations” is a $25,000,000 campaign to fund major capital projects at our 120 Northfield Campus and the Kelly Athletic Complex on Prospect Avenue. The Campaign is also focused on strengthening The Prep’s endowment. 

 

A. Seton Hall Prep accepts pledged gifts to “Generations” which may be structured over a three-to-five year payment period. Gifts may be paid in the form of cash, stocks or securities, and credit cards. Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement for more information at mcannizzo@shp.org or 973-736-6861.

 

A. The Prep’s third major capital campaign “Generations” celebrates the many young Prep men whose fathers and grandfathers are Prep alumni. Legacy students account for 10% of the 950 boys who attend our school. 

 

A. Yes! We strongly encourage you to check with your employer to see whether your gift is eligible to be matched. If your employer offers a matching gift program, please include a form, which you can usually obtain from your Human Resources Department, along with you your gift to The Prep.

 

A. The Annual Appeal / Annual Fund and The “Generations” Capital Campaign are two different but equally important funds at The Prep. Gifts to the Annual Appeal/ Annual Fund support the school’s operating budget, providing resources for the daily needs of students and faculty from classroom supplies and technology to maintaining infrastructure. In actuality, each student’s tuition is about $2,000 less than the actual cost of educating him at The Prep thanks to the generosity of Prep alumni, parents, and friends who give to the Annual Appeal. Capital gifts support long-term strategic projects that represent an investment in the school’s future. These gifts are used to enhance buildings and facilities, and to support our endowment which funds scholarship and tuition aid, student programs and faculty development and training. These major undertakings stretch beyond the school’s operating budget. Because The Prep has a no-debt policy, any major projects not covered by the yearly budget require additional capital fundraising efforts.
