Foundation Programs & Philanthropic Efforts

The Norwin School District Community Foundation, together with its affiliate, Norwin Alumni and Friends Association, strive to support Norwin School District educational students and programs. Together, NSDCF and NAFA work to encourage philanthropy within the Norwin schools and community.

Student Scholarships

The NSDCF oversees over 33 scholarships to benefit graduating Norwin High School seniors in their quest to achieve higher education at a university, college, or technical school. Since 2007, total scholarships have exceeded $993,400.

Summer Camp Scholarships

Each year, after school is out for summer, the Norwin School District offers fifteen STEM-focused summer camp programs that give Norwin students the opportunity to have fun and learn more in doing so. The Norwin Alumni & Friends Association is proud to offer two summer camp scholarships for two qualifying students.

Educator Innovation Grants

The Educator Innovation Grant (EIG) program offers competitive grants for Norwin educators in support of new, creative programs meant to enhance and enrich student learning. Since 2011, the NSDCF has distributed well over $17,000 in grants for projects that have benefited thousands of Norwin students.

Norwin Educational Giving Fund

Many educational grants require matching funds, without which the grant cannot be accepted. The Norwin Educational Giving Fund helps provide those matching funds to Norwin educators, in addition to providing additional financial support for the Educator Innovation Grants program.

Community Memorials

In addition to direct educational efforts, the Foundation manages funds and ongoing maintenance for multiple local community memorials so that a visible link to our community’s past may be remembered by all of its members.
