The Future of Newcomb College, Inc. (TFoNC) was incorporated on March 13, 2006, to protect Josephine Louise Newcomb’s mission and endowment in establishing and maintaining Newcomb College and, at the time, to promote the continued existence of H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College as a degree-granting college for women. The organization supported Howard v. Tulane and Montgomery v. Tulane, the lawsuits filed by descendents and successors of Josephine Louise Newcomb to enforce the restrictions in Mrs. Newcomb’s will and restore Newcomb as a degree-granting college within Tulane University.
Now, the Mission of TFoNC continues to be dedicated to protecting Mrs. Newcomb’s intent in establishing and maintaining Newcomb by supporting the connections among alumnae and friends of Newcomb College. The TFoNC Board of Directors comprises Newcomb alumnae and supporters from across the United States and includes members who have served the Newcomb Alumnae Association as representatives and officers, Newcomb in New York, the Dean’s Advisory Council, the Tulane Alumni Association as representatives and officers, the Tulane University President’s Council, and The Tulane Associates Board.
TFoNC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and contributions to it are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law.
