What We Do At NPPSF
The North Platte Public Schools Foundation works in a variety of ways to help our students reach their fullest potential. NPPSF accomplishes this goal using a twofold approach —
1) Removing obstacles to learning
2) Fueling student achievement.
These efforts include a number of local programs.
The Prepared to Learn Program is designed to offer immediate assistance to NPPS students in need — by providing necessary elements crucial to their academic, emotional and social success, all in a confidential manner.
The REACH Grants program funds projects which pioneer innovative approaches to teaching that cannot currently be funded through the NPPS District budget. The goal is to give educators financial support to inspire students and change lives.
Recognizing the accomplishments of the NPPS District's most notable educators, administrators, staff members and alumni is a huge part of meeting the missions of both NPPS District and NPPSF.
Because of the generosity of many donors, NPPSF provides more than $330,000 in scholarships annually for graduates of North Platte High School.
The NPPS Foundation is linking together businesses and community with education to provide opportunities and experiences beyond the regular curriculum. The belief is that students at North Platte Public Schools deserve an opportunity to become part of a strong, productive and sustainable future for the area.
Playing a critical role in ensuring privately funded initiatives are managed with the accountability and oversight required to maximize impact on student achievement. As of 2021 the Foundation has stewardship of $1.7 million through the generosity of a wide variety of philanthropic organizations and individuals. Your gifts are investments in the future of the students and, like any investment, must be nurtured and managed carefully. The Foundation is tasked to generate funds as well as to be the fiscal agent for designated funding which originates from donors and/or the district.
Managing funds for NPHS Pantry and the Backpack Program through Student Services is an example.
