In 2018, the One Catalyst Foundation continued to grow.

Our fundraising efforts for the year culminated with the Asbury Park Food Tour. This 5 stop culinary trek through Asbury Park, NJ was attended by nearly 85 participants, and together with ticket sales from the accompanying silent auction, raised $3,055 in funds for One Catalyst.

In addition, individual and corporate donations reached $3,021 for the year.  

In December 2018, One Catalyst donated $2,500 to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to be allotted toward the the cost of a sleeper chair.

A small percentage of monetary donations made directly to One Catalyst were used for administrative costs. The remainder of funds will be carried over and used to help achieve One Catalyst’s mission of providing grants for medical financial assistance, oncology research, and educational scholarships in the upcoming year.

During 2018, One Catalyst’s Board of Directors voted in a new member. Michael Leppert is a business executive with over 30 years of leadership experience in sales and operations and as the uncle of Jessica and father of 3 children, understands the importance of helping others and communities as a whole.
