Who We Are

The Nevada City Schools Foundation (NCSF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation. Its Board of Directors – parents, administrators, teaching staff and business people – are all volunteers. Although the Foundation works closely with the school district, spending decisions are made independently of the district. 

Since its inception in 1992, the Foundation has raised well over $500,000 dollars for the students in the Nevada City School District, providing grants that support art, technology and special student programs.

The Foundation runs the district-wide eScrip program, in which shoppers can use frequent shopper cards at their favorite grocery stores to earn money for our schools. Another amazing program to use is the Amazon Smile. Open  your Amazon shopping app, click on the three bars and go to Amazon Smile and choose Nevada City Schools Foundation and enable notifications to start generating donations while you shop. It's just that easy.
Fundraisers for NCSF include MOMS on the Mountain , Read, Write, Run!  and much more.

If you’re interested in getting involved, there are positions available: Treasurer, Scrip and others.
