Our Mission

The "We Are Newtown" initiative was started as a community site to share fundraising efforts and goodwill in support of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. We have hope. Hope with the knowledge that we are not and will not be defined by the misguided actions of one, but rather by what we do as a result of those actions. "We Are Newtown" rallies communities to unite and become stronger in times of tragedy. 

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 graduating seniors from Newtown with annual scholarships of $26,000. Our hope is to continue these scholarships annually, and to be able to award more than one scholarship per year.  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 net proceeds support the "We Are Newtown" Memorial Scholarship.
