Three new members will enhance board’s focus on advancing the non-profits mission
Uniondale, NY— For immediate release —Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation has expanded its board of directors with three new members who will each help support the nonprofit’s work to provide tuition assistance and resources to Long Island’s Catholic elementary schools and students.
“We are excited to grow our board with three new members who share a passion for Catholic education,” said Ismini Scouras, Executive Director of Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation. “They are already involved in our collective efforts to broaden the Foundation’s impact so all children on Long Island have access to an excellent faith-based education.”
Each new member is a product of Catholic education and a parishioner of St. Joseph’s Church in Garden City. They attribute their success to the robust Catholic education they received and believe in giving back to their Long Island community so that children in need can attend Catholic elementary school. Brendan McGovern is a Senior Partner at 26North Partners, an alternative asset management firm in New York City. McGovern and his wife Paula are the parents of two daughters, a freshman at Sacred Heart Academy, West Hempstead, and a 6th grader at the Bro. Joseph C. Fox Latin School at Kellenberg, Uniondale.
“Paula and I have experienced first-hand the benefit of the strong values and academic rigor that our Long Island Catholic schools provide to the community, and we are delighted to be part of the Tomorrow’s Hope mission,” said McGovern, a long-time supporter of Tomorrow’s Hope and the Foundation’s 2022 STARS for Students Gala honoree.
Theresa Lotito is a surgical Physician’s Assistant for NYBRA Plastic Surgery in Great Neck. Theresa is a native Long Islander, graduating from The Schools of St. Dominic in Oyster Bay; Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset; and Fordham University. “As a product of Catholic schools, I know firsthand the value and long-term benefits of the system. I am so excited to be involved with this organization,” Lotito said. Theresa lives in Garden City with her husband, Austin, and two little girls who will attend St Joseph’s in the fall.

Castoro attended Monsignor Scanlon High School in the Bronx, and he and his wife, have four children, all of whom were educated in Catholic schools from elementary through college. “Joanna and I understand the value of a Catholic education through our own experience of having our four children attend Catholic school from nursery all through college. We are very proud to be part of the Tomorrow’s Hope family,” Castoro said.
The mission of Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation is to ensure the excellence as well as the continuance of Catholic Schools on Long Island by increasing awareness and by providing scholarship and program funding for the needs of students and schools.
