Norphans Grant Application
We are Alumni of Northeast Catholic High School (Philadelphia, PA). Our purpose is to bring together as many fellow Falcons through different events throughout the year. Our goal is to raise money to assist families with the ever increasing cost of a Catholic education & for other select charities in the Philadelphia area. Our Alma Mater may be closed, but the Falcon spirit shall never die. The Norphans is an Incorporated 501(c3) Non-Profit since 2014.
Since our inception, the Norphans organization has awarded over a quarter million dollars to children and grandchildren of North Catholic graduates who attend Catholic High Schools in SE Pennsylvania and South Jersey.
