Twenty-five of the young women he coached received full Division I scholarships. An active philanthropist in the Greater Philadelphia Area and beyond, Nerney has committed to facilitating opportunities for underserved populations and has focused his efforts on initiatives that address the personal development of young people. He is also a founding member of A Front Row Seat to Learning and The Nerney Foundation, two local not-for-profit organizations. A Front Row Seat to Learning provides financial assistance to disadvantaged youth who cannot afford the opportunity of a private high school education. A Front Row Seat to Learning currently has 75 students attending a variety of high schools here in Philadelphia. Nerney is also a former member of the Board of Trustees at La Salle Academy in Philadelphia and Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School. In support of Cristo Rey, USLI hosts four Cristo Rey students during the school year who rotate one day of work each per week throughout the year. The wages they earn go directly toward the cost of their education.
