Nevada City Schools Foundation
The Nevada City Schools Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation. Its Board of Directors – parents, administrators, teaching staff and business people – is 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 $350,000 dollars for the students in the Nevada City School District, providing grants that support art, technology and special student programs.
For 17 years NCSF has sponsored the annual MOMs on the Mountains hike in order to reach its goals. The 19th MOMS event is planned for September 28, 2013.
NCSF also produced the very successful Bike Blast in 2010 in tandem with the Amgen Tour of California and the Bike and Hike event held spring of 2012.The event included a family hike and a variety of biking events that people of all ages and abilities had an opportunity to participate in. The event raised over $12,000. Stay tuned for Bike and Hike 2013.
In addition to MOMs on the Moutains and the Bike and Hike the foundation will host a fall event, Falling Leaves Fun Run, scheduled for Saturday, October 27, 2012.
In addition the Foundation runs the district wide Scrips program, in which shoppers can use frequent shopper cards at their favorite grocery stores to earn money for our schools.
