The disgraced NBC newsman hasn’t given a dime to his old New Jersey high school, which is trying to raise enough dough just to stay open, principal Craig Palmer told The Post.
Middletown’s Mater Dei Prep warns it will be forced to shut its doors by June if it doesn’t raise enough cash. Earlier this month, supporters launched a campaign to raise $1 million.
The school has raised $427,000, but is still waiting to hear from its most famous graduate, according to Palmer.
Earlier this month, Williams, 55, said he was “heartbroken” when he learned of the school’s sorry financial state. (Read more about Williams never donating to his cash-strapped high school HERE)
