On behalf of the Trustees of the Northmont Education Foundation, I am pleased to provide you with an update on the status of the Northmont Education Foundation. Thousands of students benefit from the grants for programs, equipment and supplies. Over $56,000 was awarded in scholarships to 2016 graduating seniors and $31,000 in grants to staff and students for 2016. Because of the generosity of people like you, and our community businesses, these numbers increased form last year!
We will announce another round of scholarship and grant winners in May, 2017 and hope to better these numbers again!
The NEF was established in 1985 with its first donation of $1,000 from Emery Airfreight. We are proud to be the largest education fund within the Dayton Foundation, and we are committed to making a difference for the children in our community.
Our mission is to provide funds to enhance the education of students in the Northmont Community through grants and scholarships. We are an endowment fund, meaning every donation keeps giving year after year. Your support today, regardless of size, ensures the future of our Foundation.
It is a privilege to serve on the Board and a pleasure to know that our Foundation will benefit students and teachers today and for many years to come. There is no greater gift than enriching a child's life, and the future of Northmont Schools is a bright one, thanks to the generosity of people like you.
Chris EifertChair, NEF Board of Trustees
