Our Domenica Scholars had so much fun at our hayride on Saturday! We do lots of educational activities with our high school scholarship students. We also sponsor extracurricular events that give our scholars a chance to enjoy a new activity, with time to socialize.
Nearly 60 Camden children got their first taste of summer camp last week. We funded camperships at Camp Speers YMCA in the Poconos for 5 children whose families would not otherwise have been able to afford summer camp.
Today we introduce you to our newest grantee—and ask for your help in making its mission a success!
Graduation season offers us a chance to check in with former Domenica Scholars. Every year, we see how students have leveraged the high-quality high school education they received through the Domenica Scholarship into great achievements in college and beyond.
Here are four examples from the scholarship class of 2019, now the college class of 2023.
In our annual awards ceremony on April 25, the Domenica Foundation welcomed 20 rising ninth graders into the newest class of Domenica Scholars! Pictured above are students who will enroll in Camden Catholic High School in the fall.
Spring into Action 2023 was a great success! We asked volunteers to choose one or two words to describe their experience. “Fun” was the first word many of them came up with. Next were “fulfilling,” “meaningful,” and similar terms to describe how good it feels to help others.
We are so pleased to welcome eager volunteers to Spring into Action! Our annual volunteer day has been on hiatus since 2020–but now it’s back, on Saturday, April 22. We hope you can join us!
It was just like an Iron Chef episode! As Elena Piperno, Domenica Foundation director, arrived to help judge the Cathedral Kitchen (CK) pasta competition, students in the culinary arts training program were putting finishing touches on their dishes.
