Nevada City Schools Foundation

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 – 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 $500,000 dollars for the students in the Nevada City School District, providing grants that support art, technology and special student programs.

The Foundation annually hosts a fall event, Falling Leaves Fun Run. The 5k/10k races are part of the Gold Country Grand Prix Series. The next race is scheduled for September 24, 2016.
