About The Bridge Fund

Mission: The Bridge Fund is a community partner with The Lawrence Township School Foundation and is a dedicated reserve allocated to support deserving students in Lawrence Township, advocating the opportunity to participate in all school aspects, such as academics, athletics, extracurricular activities, special projects and other various events.
Lawrence Township School System Success
History: The Bridge Fund was founded in 2012 by Chad McCune and Mark Pressley to benefit the students of the three Lawrence Township high schools. The funds have been used to help students pay for book rental fees, clothes needed for interviews, college tours, college application fees, winter coats, bus & transportation costs and test fees to include AP, A+ Certification, SAT and ACT exams.

Since 2014, the fund has grown to include all grade levels in Lawrence Township adding many thousands of middle and elementary school students. By expanding the scope of students served, the fund will continue in the same spirit, but now reach more students providing opportunities that may not have otherwise be possible.

The Bridge Fund works alongside each of the schools administrators and counselors to identify the needs of their students and help them apply for assistance.

"I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how thankful I am for The Bridge Fund Scholarship. I was speechless the night my son received his award. I was so happy for him (and proud)! I know he will keep you informed during his college years. Many, many thanks"!
