The evening was not only a fund-raising success for the programs NCEF supports, it also helps the NCEF build relationships with community members as we showcase the fine talents of North Clackamas students and illustrate how NCEF is bridging the gap for North Clackamas Schools.

NCEF, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1992 to provide educational opportunities to students in the NCSD. NCEF grew out of the belief that equity and fairness have a great impact on the education of our students. The mission of the NCEF is to bridge the gap between district funding and unmet student needs. Without public support NCEF scholarships, teacher grants and the NCEF’s ability to supplement student activity fees and arts programming would decline.
