The Newtown Charities Coordination Committee has been created to provide information about funds setup after the tragedy of 12/14/12.  The committee website is a central location where town residents, in addition to people from across the globe, can find information around various Sandy Hook related charitable funds and organizations.  It is our intention that the site provide visitors with ample information to contact an individual organization which may suit their needs and/or desires to assist the Newtown community in its recovery efforts.  Further, it is the committee hope that organizations with similar objectives may collaborate and work together for the greater good of the community including referral of funding sources that may fit better with other organizations, sharing of resources and best practices, understanding common challenges, and merging forces where it makes sense.  In cases such as this the committee would serve as a liaison in organizing any conferences, meetings, or summits amongst various groups to enhance the successful on-going recovery and healing efforts within the community...Read more »

Partnership Organization: We Are Newtown – Newtown Scholarship Association

Mission: We have established the We Are Newtown Memorial Scholarship to honor those lives taken at Sandy Hook.  Our goal is simple, to support the efforts of four graduating seniors from Newtown with annual scholarships of $6,500 totaling $26,000.     The students receiving the scholarships are individuals who are pursuing a career in education or teaching.  We felt there was no better way to honor the four lives lost in an Elementary School than to support those who want to teach young people.     Our Facebook page has also acted as our anchor in promoting the beauty of the town, the strength of the people and all who continue to support our community.   The We Are Newtown Memorial Scholarship is being administered by the Newtown Scholarship Association, Inc., a federally recognized 501 (c) (3) since 1963.  100% of the net proceeds of “We are Newtown” tee shirts support the We Are Newtown Memorial Scholarship.   Address: Amplitude Marketing Group, Inc.
