What We Do: The Norfolk Public Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides opportunities to the Norfolk school district that cannot be offered by traditional school funding. These opportunities include items like Classroom Grants, scholarships to Norfolk High School graduates, alumni support, and many of the other extras.

Area Served: We serve the students, teachers, administration and alumni of Norfolk Public Schools in Norfolk, Nebraska.

Our Wish List: We seek financial support for our programs. Classroom Grants work directly in the classrooms with the student and teachers. Scholarships promote secondary education. NPSF has many memorial scholarships available to NHS graduates that were created in honor of a beloved teacher, coach or community member. If you would like to honor someone, please contact us, we would be glad to help you do that!

We also seek unrestricted funding. Unrestricted funding creates opportunities for our directors and staff to sustain and grow the foundation. By not restricting your gift, you give us the option to react quickly to needs in the school district as they arise and to envision new innovative ways to impact students.
