The North Scott Educational Foundation was established in 1986. That year the Foundation was only able to offer one $500 scholarship. In 2012, 26 years later, the Foundation awarded 50 scholarships totaling over $68,000! This came about because of the generous donations of friends, neighbors, businesses and organizations that care about the future of North Scott kids.
- Tax-deductible gifts to the Foundation go directly to the “kids” (We are an all volunteer organization with overhead cost of approximately 1%)
- In our 26 year history, NSEF has given away 555 scholarships totaling more than $907,000!
- The NSEF endowment has grown to over $1,000,000 and still growing.
The mission of the North Scott Education Foundation is to primarily provide scholarships for post high school education to North Scott graduates and to enhance appropriate school sponsored educational experiences for North Scott Students.
