Business & Community Partners

The Foundation fosters partnerships with businesses and nonprofits that allow them to target dollars to causes they believe are important. Every year these donations provide for our grant and scholarship opportunities to be funded.

For organizations that want to make an impact in classrooms, the North Central Education Foundation program has proven to be an invaluable tool. The grants go to the most innovative and creative teachers who figure out how to impact student learning with a relatively small amount of money, about $300 on average.

Please join us in helping support great teaching and hands-on learning in the classrooms by becoming a major sponsor of the North Central Education Foundation. You can make a significant difference in classrooms in your community and around the region.

To learn more about how you can make a major donation, please email Eldene Wall or call (509) 665-2629.

“It is such a thrill to be able to get dollars into the hands of teachers and support music and arts education at the classroom level,” said Rufus Woods, on behalf of the Woods Family Music and Arts Fund. “Every year, we hear back from teachers who have added music or art activities to their classrooms and they appreciate the support.”
